Sitka & ATVs
Posted by Forestar on Mar 04 2006
You might get some use out of your ATV here, but probably not like you'd like. (I mainly use mine to plow snow.)  There's one short developed trail system out past the ferry terminal, but you'd probably get bored with it pretty fast.  BUT, it's the only trail accessible from town.  There are hundreds of miles of other trails (old logging roads) off-island.  Almost all on Forest Service land and the local Ranger district and law enforcement officer are not very user friendly towards ATV-ers.  The trails are old logging roads that aren't being maintained, and the FS has let the bridges go to hell, forcing ATVs to cross through the streams, which is illegal. And the LEO loves to write tickets.  Alot of those roads are officially closed to any motorized vehicles, but a few of the bigger systems arte open.  And the other thing is getting to thoise places with the ATV.  You'd need a boat, preferably a landing craft. Got a spare $50k laying around?
