|Greentj05||I agree that joining a club is the best way to go, but with my work schedule and it being practically IMPOSSIBLE to have any sort of a weekend off it would be a total waste of my money.. Haven't been able to make one club run in almost two years! Only time I get to go out anymore is with last minute planning|

|Rubicon 13||Hi guys Rubi rich is correct. This is the best way to go and have some fun. A bunch of us use to ride or ATV all the time. Now we get our balls busted. They wanted you to pay the sales tax then say there is no where to ride. This state is just a dumping ground for welfare recipients.|

|RubiconRich||you don't have to join our club, but joining a club is the best way to go.|

|JKZombie||I'm not being an a$$hole. but RubiconRich seems very adament in getting someone to join his club I would like to join a club, but my 50 dollars would go to waste as I work Nights, so my sleep schedual is all messed up. i could never make any runs. I'm sure i speak for many people when I say that i just wouldnt have the time. I would probably be lucky to make one run per year with the club.|
|08-31-2012 03:36 PM|
|RubiconRich||there are other spots that the clubs know.|

what's with the round headlight comment i have 90 yj with square and it's a 4 cyl but it's still a jeep with 33's i guess it's a yj thing not caring about round headlights if so we would all have cj's ?
any way the legal trails ie roads are still around but located on the western side of RI and the cops can't keep you off them i spent many years on the road doing service calls where the address was a dirt road with a pole number some over the years have become paved in part. some in the more restricted scituate reservoir have been closed but parts are still open. this was as a result of a few who trashed the areas either with their 4 wheelers or dirt bikes that caused people who live near by to complain hence all done no longer available all it takes is a few to ruin it for the rest of us. these roads while not rock climbing roads can be slippery when wet and beautiful. i not into rock climbing not to nock i just don't want to break my jeep so it depends what you want and please be respectful as a forum member said ilegal runs just give us a bad name and less access

As far as legality goes:
The the trail you see on google earth is not Hanton City Road, its actually an easement used for a gas pipleline. According to the state of RI it is illegal to drive on.
The actual road itself is the thin clearing of trees that you can barely make out above the clearing you see on google earth.
In addition all of the trails branching off Hanton City Road are private property and also illegal to drive on.
I'm not trying to be a pain in the @$$ here but the State has the right to shut down the road and i rather not see a trail so close to my home shut down because of irresponsible roaders.
I'm attaching an image so its easier to see what im talking about.
All of this information can be found on the Smithfield RI website.

|T.I.B.26||where is this place in smithfield? i wanna check this out also|
|08-11-2012 06:36 AM|
I live close to that and ive been down that trail many times before, not to bad of a trail. Rocky in spots and it can get muddy in the winter.
It leads to the old supposedly haunted Hanton City
Watch out for pedestrians, ive ran into many people in the summer walking the trail or going to see the remnants of the city.
*Also as far as it being legal, i don't know on the legality of the road but the trials that branch off of the road and the surrounding land belongs to The Dow Chemical Company.

Hanton City rd
Before it is a gravel pit area. The north is the fidelity financial complex. The trail,(Hanton City) is a town road. Just abandoned. Google map it and zoom in, you will see the trail, no trees.

|RubiconRich||I took a look online at it. looks like someone is building a industrail park near there.|

Top secret trail
I was looking for land for sale in Smithfield, and found an old paper road/trail. Very cool spot. legal, as it is a recorded road. Not paved, very rocky in spots. Took my FX4 F150 half way in and turned back.
take Rt116 to Reservior Rd prior to RT 295 overpass. Follow it just before a plat with newer homes. On the left will be a dirt path, unmarked. Google map it, its call Hanton City Road. In theory, it goes all the way to Rt7. It was used to access a home, but the home burned, many years ago.
Please give me some feedback on what you think. I will post more of these as I find them if everyone is interested.
