Nauset

The nauset beach orv trails have been open for two weeks now. I've managed to get out 3 times, twice today. Anybody else gotten out yet?

I've been on about 4 times since it opened. Heading there tomorrow.
I usually go out on the trails year round when there open.

one thing that was smart that they did to deal with the closure was make parking in the regular lot free if you had a valid pass. while not as fun as driving, its still better than nothing

I agree. I must have hit the beach about 12 times before the trails opened. And at $15 a day that's some money saved.

Non residents is actually $180 and it expires end of April of the following year. So if you got a season pass today it would expire last day of April 2015.

Over night stays are only self contained vehicles and that is a different permit that runs about another $100-$120 more.

And they do not allow day trip passes. Only season permits after a vehicle inspection is done first.

Right now, you can get a pass valid until may 2015 for half price. chatham does not do a vehicle inspection on the spot, but they can at the gatehouse and if you do not have the required stuff, you will be fined 50 bucks.

they inspect to see you meet the minimum tire size and if you have everything. you need: a military grade shovel, tire pressure gauge, jack, a jack support board 144 square inches, a tow strap, a full size spare
