Trail Crew – Hard At Work


DGATV’s Executive, Wardens and Trail Crew are hard at work keeping the trails in good shape for the summer.

Trails are monitored for the safety of all users — hikers, bikers, ATVers, and horseback riders.

Fallen trees are cut.  Gaping holes are filled.  Sign posts are cleared of grass and brush.

Parking areas are trimmed and mowed.

If you see an area that needs maintenance, please let us know at

If you want a great excuse to get out on the trails AND help support the club, become a Warden.

Or if you are the handyman-type, wanting to ride and preferring to work here and there, talk to our Trail Captain (519.266.3559 ext. 3).

Every little bit helps!

A big Thank You to all of our trail workers, we couldn’t do it without YOU!
