DGATV’s Trailer Unveiling (2017)

DGATV’s Directors viewed the new trailer at last night’s (July 19th) Executive meeting. This new addition will solve much of the difficulty in getting tools and materials to remote locations along the trail for maintenance. The trailer has been equipped with a hydraulic lift and will be invaluable for dumping rocks and gravel for hole repair.

Trail Closure (2017 Spring) – Walters Falls

Please note that Walters Falls tract is closed until further notice.

The land is too wet and deemed unsafe by our club and the landowners.  Please honour our agreements and respect our landowners.

Stay tuned.  Once the property dries up (a little) we’ll let you know!

The recent rains have left many waterways and creeks flowing fast and deep.  Small puddles are now lakes.  Use extreme caution near flooded and overflowing areas.  If you don’t know an area … Don’t Go!

 

 



 

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 www.grey.ca for road information.

The City of Owen Sound’s by-law allows ATV use on specific roadway, opening April 15th.  Check www.owensound.ca 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!
