hey everyone. i have a camp in Gaines township in Tioga county. its my primary riding spot. what i haven't been able to figure out, is what roads are ridable. youll see signs saying its an atv road traveling one direction, but when you get to the next intersection, there is a sign facing back towards where you came that says no atvs. or sometimes, there will be a sign that says the road is open to atv's, but then it never says where you cant ride anymore. and it goes into state land, so its obvious you can no longer ride. its most certainly not obvious to others that it goes into state land.

its kind of laughable. why put up the signs if they make no sense.

so basically, where can i find out what roads i can ride on. im not trying to get a ticket, or have the locals shake their fists. but at the same time, if i can ride it, i wanna ride it!!!!

is there a particular organization, or should i just call the township?

thanks! im happy i found this forum!

I believe your correct , the local township supervisors should have a listing of ATV approved roads .

if i could find a decent source for the info, and a decent way to distribute it to the public, id happily make a map of the multi-use roads. its a shame its not as well documented as the snowmobile roads.

Potter is pretty simple. If the road has no paint (normal white or yellow lines) its legal, if it is signed and has paint its legal. If it is not signed and painted its not legal. I always make the asumption that applies in all areas of legeal road riding Pa. At least then I have an argument if we get stopped. Hasnt happened yet though.

I don't think there are any roads we don't ride in Potter, but then again if you know some of the farms you can just cut off across the fields if need be. Wish I could be help, but I don't even think the people who put those signs up know which roads are OK to ride in Tioga haha

Thanks for the info irish3wheeler. Is this official info and if so, do you know where to find it documented? I just wanted to know so that in case I get stopped I know the rules. We had been riding in Potter (near Ulysses) on private ground for a bunch of years and then one year while driving noticed the "ATV Road" signs. It seems like Bingham, Harrison, & Hector twps have more ATV legal roads then Ulysses Twp does. I have a Potter Co Penn DOT General Highway Map and it seems like the rule of thumb is that the roads that are purple (twp roads) on the map are the ones that are marked and legal. I just got the same map of Tioga Co today. Do you know if the same applies to Tioga Co - twp roads are legal? I would greatly appreciate any help. I had called to a Potter Co office or one of the twp offices and posed these questions but was not given satisfactory answers. I don't know if it is what they intended, but it sounded like they really didn't want me to know. I love riding on the roads on ATV. I don't have a motorcycle so ATV riding on the roads is as good as it gets for me and it is the highlight of my year when I get to do it.

Heck , I'm just happy to hear you guys worry about being legal . ok

I've talked to grown men that have invited me to ride certain areas . But when I ask if they are riding with permission , the answer is ( KINDA ) doh . When I told them it's near an area HEAVILY patroled , they did'nt seem to care banghead

This is why I tell people that the members on this site are great family oriented people . Keep up the LEGAL ATVer image and hopefully we can change the attitude of the BAD ATV image so many unknowing people have of us . thumbs groupwave
