Well for those of you who ride potter county/Denton ski area the golf course has been officially shut down. The area has been posted heavily and slabs of asphalt have been put up at the enterance going in. Talked to a local I guess they have been trying to do this for some time ( the area wasent supposed to be ridden on but have looked the other way until now). From what the local told me the area may be patrolled via cops, so just a heads up I would steer clear if you ever made the trip out that way.

We were up there the beginning of the month and was so upset the golf course was closed. We found some new stuff and the mud pit just past the entrance to the golf course was a lot of fun. Just not the same!

We were there last week and it is posted and blocked. We were told an accident occurred there recently and that is why its shut down.
I heard they are patrolling it. I took this picture, they mean it.

we went riding up there for the first time but were a little confused of where we could and could not go. does anyone with more experience up there know about any maps drawn or gps map of where you ride. I just don't want to make the wrong person mad.

hotframer13 , if your staying in the campground , just drive over the highway by the Inn and ride the State Park trails . If I remember correctly there are 43 miles in thier park .

You aren't going to find a map with the legal roads. Just be sure you are wearing a helmet and being responsible and no one messes with you. For the most part. Stay off the state roads and state forest roads too. All of Sweden Township is legal, the town of Roulette, and several other townships. I would worry too much if your not tearing things up.

We have found the area to be very ATV friendly. Pretty much all the dirt roads are open to ATV usage, some farmers do allow you to pass through their fields provided you stay on the trail, don't disturb the plantings, and go slow with no tire spinning. Several times you have to cross a paved road (which is legal) we actually saw cars stop for us, put on their 4 way blinkers and let us all through!

It is not easy to know which landowners are ATV friendly and not, we lucked out and hooked up with a group that showed us around.
