This is the main page for the project that affects the use of the Thomaston Dam


  • The Thomaston Dam is the only trail system in Connecticut that allows riding for ATV registered off highway vehicles (OHV). Only two-wheel motorcycles are allowed.
  • The State of Connecticut passed a law in 1986 that required that State land shall be used for motorized use. They’ve never complied.
  • There are more than 26,000 motorcycles that are being used off highway in Connecticut.
  • This is not the fault of the Army Corps of Engineers or the State of Connecticut. There’s no reason to be mad at them.
  • New York and New Jersey have no public trails for OHV and many riders travel long distances to enjoy the Thomaston Dam.
