For 1 this is a private road so no signage is needed. 2nd all of the rigs were blocking the road and logging trucks couldn’t get through. It looked like a regular traffic jam.

where i come from if parking is not allowed there is a sign telling that. no signs its fair game but don't block the road or park in a sketchy spot around a corner or over a hill
Seriously??? You come from BOSTON .... where they put an Orange Cone or Plastic Milk Crates to designate "No Parking" !!!!

There is a reason many of us Mainers see some people from certain states as thinking our state is their private playground and we often feel they don't care less about any damage done to our state or its landowners or our access while they play by their own rules....wherever they feel entitled to play.

You need a sign posted to show respect to private Maine landowners ? Bummer.

Itís not allowed to park on any plowed thruway or snowmobile on any plowed road on logging company land without specific permission. Itís actually illegal. They have just been nice enough to look the other way until it became a serious issue with people not doing the right thing.

Your argument about signage holds no merit as it is private land. Thatís akin to you parking your trailer in your neighbors driveway without his permission. Just because thereís no sign in his driveway telling you not to park your trailer there doesnít mean you have the right to do it.

Tax map of the area is a great place to start. Or you could ask someone locally who owns the land. There are several large timber company’s in the north Maine woods. They sometimes have maps on their websites of the land they own as well. Pretty sure the state has a map of all state owned land also.

Bottom line is if you want to ride in the backcountry it’s best to have a deck and find a spot off the road to park. You will normally not have an issue if you do that. It’s when there’s 10 trucks and trailerS lining the sides of the road making it dangerous for loggers to pass. They’re usually hauling ass too because they aren’t expecting anyone to be parked on the side of the road. It’s not that they don’t want people there it’s more about safety. And having one extra obstacle to deal with. Time is money.

The clubs that promote off trail can be helpful too. RLSC has been dealing with this issue for a couple years. It’s $30 to join the club. Even if you don’t Trail ride it’s worth it. Or check their Facebook page for notices about stuff like this. A lot of times the clubs or local businesses will tell you where you can and can’t park and where you should and shouldn’t be riding.
