After public input, the Select Board on Monday approved a new ordinance allowing Off-Highway Recreational Vehicles to ride along a segment of Industrial Park Road and Burndy Road

LITTLETON — After public input, the Select Board on Monday approved a new ordinance allowing Off-Highway Recreational Vehicles to ride along a segment of Industrial Park Road and Burndy Road to connect to a trail access point farther west, at the snowmobile crossing. The ordinance comes after the state recently clamped down to prohibit the machines from riding on the recreational rail east into downtown from Industrial Park Road because that segment of trail was purchased with federal grant dollars with the caveat that no motorized vehicles are allowed on it. That particular length of trail has been closed to machines for several years, but Littleton town officials said the New Hampshire Bureau of Trails has recently begun to step up enforcement. The section of rail trail on the other side of the Industrial Park Road that extends to Woodsville is open to OHRVs.
