Old Rivers, That makes too much sense. Here's a link for responsible ATV use on trails.

Obviously not all areas are good or even acceptable for ATV use, but to say NO on all state forest land seems unfair. I personally don't own an ATV, but have several friends that do. I've never seen them mud bogging or ripping trails up. All they use them for is hauling people/gear in and out and dragging out deer. Definitely low impact use.
