DGATV Ride – Canada Day 2017

Happy Canada Day!

Join us for this ride on Saturday, July 1st, 2017.

Side by sides are welcome.

As with any ride it is advisable to dress appropriately for the weather and the terrain. Also to have extra fuel, drinking water, snack, rain gear, bug spray, basic repair tools, bandaids, compass, map and cell phone on hand. Note that there may not be cell service in all areas. We look forward to seeing you on the trail and hope you have a great ride!






Trail Closure (2017 Spring) – Walters Falls

August Update:  Note that the red trail is closed, but the rest of Walters Falls tract is open.

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!

Trail Opening (2017) – Spring is in the Air!


While not entirely obvious, Spring 2017 is around the corner!

Wardens will start to clear DGATV’s trails in mid-April. Public riding will begin around May 1st weather-dependent.  Note that we can’t ride if the trails are really wet because damage results.
