CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Wider, heavier all-terrain vehicles would be allowed at New Hampshire's Jericho Mountain State Park under a bill approved by the House.
The House voted Wednesday to send the Senate a pair of bills dealing with the larger, utility off-highway recreational vehicles. One bill authorizes the state's bureau of trails to develop trails for vehicles 65 inches wide and weighing up to 1,700 pounds at Jericho Mountain. The bigger vehicles would be limited to specific trails to minimize the environmental impact.
The second bill increases the width from 50 inches to 62 inches and weight from 1,000 pounds to 1,700 pounds that utility off-highway recreational vehicles are allowed on state trails in Coos and Grafton counties.
