Default ATV trails in burg???

I know its early but want to ask before I buy.
I was going back and forth from quad to side by side and made up my mind side by side was for me.
Been searching then found out they may not be legal on trails.
Is this the case in the burg?
Thanks

I believe the gate opening on any state trail is about 54". If your side by side is narrower than 54" you should be all set, but I think there is only one brand that meets the width for the gates and I can't remember which one it is.

Well that sucks. Looks like 2 quads for me then. One for me and one for the old lady.
And search continued

I dont think thats the case. Take a look at the ATV clubs web sites and you will see all kinds of side by's. I know there is a width requirement but think that most will pass. The Can Am comander looks questionable but I know a RZR will work.

I guess there are some places you can and some places you can't, and just because you see someone else doing it doesn't make it legal. This is from the F&G OHRV handout:
WHERE CAN I RIDE?
You can ride on trails that are clearly signed and designated
for the type of vehicle that you are operating or on
land where you have received written landowner permission
to ride. In order to operate on state-approved trails,
OHRVs cannot be over 50 inches wide, except at Jericho
Mtn. State Park, which allows OHRVs up to 65 inches
wide, and on some club trail systems. Contact the local
club for more information.

The local clubs are not going to add photos of illegal vehicles on their web site as advertisements for their trails.
