About OFATV

The Ontario Federation of ATV Clubs (OFATV) is a not for profit organization that strives to establish and organize safe recreational ATVing in Ontario.  The goal of the OFATV is a province-wide ATV trail system similiar to the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC).

The OFATV consists of a group of ATV clubs in Ontario and is managed by volunteers with the goal of providing safe, legal and sustainable trails across the province. OFATV staff and volunteers are constantly working with the provincial government and municipalities to champion the rights of ATV riders. The organization endeavours to help the general public understand that riding members are environmentally conscious outdoor enthusiasts who respect other outdoor sports.

Dufferin Grey ATV Club is a member of the OFATV along with these neighbouring clubs:

fb-002-teeny West Grey ATV Club / www.westgreyatvclub.ca

See www.ofatv.org for a complete list of OFATV clubs.

To ride the below-noted neighbouring clubs’ trails requires a separate purchase of another organization’s permit:

Huron Shores ATV Club / www.huronshoresatvclub.org (need an EOTA pass)

fb-002-teeny South Bruce Peninsula ATV Club / www.sbpatvclub.com (need an EOTA pass)

ATV trails in Ontario consist of private and public properties and roads.  Most of the routes have special agreements with the landowner/custodian(s).  You must be an OFATV club member to ride OFATV trails, otherwise you are trespassing.  Please click here to learn more about becoming an OFATV/DGATV member rider.  Joining an OFATV club gives you the opportunity to shape the future of ATVing in Ontario.

Trail Closure – Walters Falls Tract (Spring 2018)

Walters Falls tract is closed until further notice

DGATV asks for your consideration

Please honour DGATV’s agreements and promises to protect landowners’ best interests. It is too wet to ride Walters Falls tract at this point without doing a lot of damage. Continuing to ride in the wet costs DGATV & OFATV money to repair the trails, which increases the cost of permits. Damaging the land also angers landowners, which loses trails. Please consider the future of ATVing in Ontario and stay out of Walters Falls tract for now.

Public trails are expected to open May 1st weather permitting.
