    I hope everyone had a nice long weekend!

    My boys and I went out to the Somerville forest tract to do some riding. When I was there, I found the signage on the gates confusing. As an example, here are the signs on gate #2:

    As you can see, one sign says motorbikes are allowed while another says they are not! All these signs are on the same gate! The other images show that the OFTR has rights, but there is also a red sign (not shown) that says you need an ATV pass to access the trails.

    I try my best to only go on trails legally and where we are permitted, but it can get very confusing! Am I allowed on that trail? These are the gates just off of Monck road (down the dirt road where the new parking lot is located).

    Thanks.

    Kevin and I rode up there on Monday and took the trail heading north off the Monk Rd.

    Yes you're allowed on those trails, if you're an OFTR member riding a legal DS or trail bike. The OFTR has a land use agreement with Somerville.

    Excellent! I was pretty sure I could ride there, but there are a few mixed signals.

    Thanks for the info.
