My understanding, and I may be off in the details, is that the road is on land that now belongs mostly to Scenic Hudson, the environmental 501c3 based in Poughkeepsie. The Beacon Reservoir is located on one of the roads near the top of the mountain. The road continues on to land owned by New York State Parks. Along the way are a handful of inholdings--private property surrounded on all sides by either Scenic Hudson or Parks or both. Each of the entities--Beacon, Parks, and the private owners--can use the road for access to their property, probably by easement. I suspect that the vast majority of the offroad vehicles are there using it illegally to the degree that they are not affiliated with either Scenic Hudson, Parks or the private owners.
