Trail Opening (2017) – Ready, Set, Go!

Good news!  DGATV’s trails are open as of May 1st although Sideroad 10B (east of Harkaway Forest heading toward Beaver Valley) will remain closed due to flooding.

Harkaway Forest does not open until June 20th.

Specific Grey County roads are also open May 1st, check for road information.

The City of Owen Sound’s by-law allows ATV use on specific roadway, opening April 15th.  Check for further information.

Maps can be found here.

CP rail trail access extends from Veteran’s Way (Orangeville) to Sunny Valley Road (above Chatsworth) for ATVs only.

Please note that UTVs and ROVs (aka side-by-sides) are not allowed on the CP rail trail or in Harkaway Forest.  Results of a Grey County trails study due in the autumn will determine if side-by-sides will be approved.

Have a safe and enjoyable season.  On your mark, get set, go!

DGATV’s Executive / Board of Directors

Established in 2006, a succession of keen riders have taken the helm of Dufferin Grey ATV Club Inc (DGATV) on the Board of Directors.  We thank each and every one, past and present, for their contribution to the successful operation of our club.

The Board of Directors are responsible for directing DGATV’s operations.  The Board sets the policies, priorities, strategy, and upcoming events for the season. The Board is responsible for dealing with the Ontario Federation of ATV Clubs (OFATV), all levels of government, the police, landowners, sponsors, communities and members.

DGATV’s Board of Directors meet at 7pm on the third Wednesday of every month excluding December.  The Dundalk Legion (Branch #285) is located at 109 Proton St. N. in Dundalk.  Other Volunteers, members and prospective members are welcome.

We have 9 Directors with two-year terms (4-5 split in alternate years).  If you are interested in becoming a Director you must be a member on record with DGATV for at least 3 months and stand at our annual general meeting (typically held in March).  The Directors vote for the President and Vice-President on an annual basis.  Other positions are Treasurer, Chief Warden, Events Coordinator, Membership Coordinator and Trail Captain.  The Secretary is a non-voting position.  Directors can be contacted via or by calling 519.266.3559.
