Trail Rules & Regulations

Dear members and friends of our club,

Now that all the snow is gone everyone is getting anxious to ride, however we need to follow the rules.

 

  • Please always make sure you follow the By-Laws for your area.
  • Don’t trespass. If the trail is not on our map (available at all sales locations) and it is not your own property you should not be there.
  • Stay on the trails marked by signage from our club.
  • Always check if the trails are open via our website or call us before going out.
  • Make sure you read and understand the rules of ATVing covered by the Off Road Vehicles Act and Regulation 316/03 which can be found on the https://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/index.html
  • You can get more information on https://ontario.ca/atv or at https://www.opp.ca/ecms/files/263826331.4.pdf

To know the Rules and Regulations we recommend reading the following:

We would also like to remind everybody that snowmobile trails are not ATV trails and should not be used unless the local ATV club has secured a land use agreement with local landowners. Using unsanctioned land will only cause permanent loss of trails for everybody.
