DCR has instituted a required trail permit for ATV and OHM users at October Mtn. State Forest. The recreational permit program has facilitated more direct and effective communication between our staff and our ATV and OHM customers and provided valuable information about user demand, the popularity of motorized recreation trails and rider demographic and usage patterns. Trail permits are free of charge and may be reserved up to 60 days in advance via email at: Pittsfield.ATV-permits@state.ma.us or by calling (413) 358-2172.
