Heavy rains will delay opening of Maine ATV trails
Maine's ATV trails will be closed through at least late May after this week's heavy rains and flooding.
The Maine Bureau of Lands issued a notice earlier this week that the damage and wet conditions mean that trails will be closed through at least Memorial Day weekend.
Maine's ATV trails typically open in mid-May at the earliest, and many don't open until early June to give time for them to dry out.
