Patten ATV Club is an all-volunteer non-profit organization located in Patten, Maine. The Club’s mission is to maintain trails in the Greater Patten Area. 

Patten ATV Club strives to be a family oriented club. Since their inception in 2010, their membership has steadlily increased and about 100 landowners have granted the club permission to utilize their land for their trail systems. 

They have connections with several local clubs in the surrounding area, including the Katahdin Valley Wheelers, Island Falls Freewheelers and Knowles Corner Wheelers which adds hundreds of miles of riding! 


Patten ATV Club has a hundred plus miles of readily accessible side-by-side trails, with plans to start a new trail soon. Currently, their ATV trails travel through: Patten, Mount Chase, Moro, Hersey, Crystal and Stacyville. 

Club trail systems connect to many local supporting businesses. There are gas stations, restaurants and lodging nearby, conveniently marked on the trails. 

Their Park & Ride is located on Route 159/Shin Pond Road on the right-hand side before Peavey Brook.
