A REMINDER - CLUB MEMBERS NEED TO GET OUT AND DO SOME BRUSHING! OUR TRAILS ARE BECOMING SERIOUSLY OVERGROWN. PLEASE START HELPING

Welcome to the web page for the Airline Swamp Donkey ATV Club!

The club was formed in 2009 as the Airline Snackbar ATV Club. When a visitor from New Jersey saw a moose walking down the Stud Mill Road when out for a ride, he asked his uncle if that was a donkey. With a laugh his uncle replied, "Yes, we call them swamp donkeys." This is not an uncommon nickname for the moose family, and the club members thought it was pretty funny. It was decided to use the phrase as a nickname for our club, and we have since shortened it up, and “The Swamp Donkey ATV Club" was born! People really remember that name.

We maintain over 100 miles of trails in the Beddington area on Rte. 9 here in Maine, mostly on the lands of AFM forestry company. The company has asked us to maintain the bridge at a maximum width of 60 inches. You should keep this in mind when planning your ride. The trails combine dirt roads through blueberry barrens, over mountains and hills, through forested lands and by scenic lakes and rivers. Wildlife abounds; deer, moose, beaver, coyote, eagles, turtles, bears and so much more.

We are kept busy working on the trails, brushing, clearing, signing and building bridges. It is important to stay on marked trails in order to keep using them.
