DGATV’s Trails are OPEN (2021)

DGATV’s Executive along with Grey and Dufferin counties are happy to announce that DGATV’s trails are OPEN effective Friday, June 11, 2021 for DGATV’s 15th season!

Dufferin Grey ATV Club’s (DGATV) typical season extends from May 1st to November 30th (or first snowfall).  However, due to the governments’ pandemic response, DGATV’s trails were closed for the first part of the season.

The Government of Ontario’s province-wide Stay-at-Home order expired on June 2, 2021 but Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen plan didn’t take effect until June 11th (revised from June 14th) further delaying the opening.

Grey County reminds riders to be in compliance with the distancing rules, and to adhere to all other rules (e.g. limits on social gatherings, if sharing a machine must be from same household, etc.).

Now that the trails are open, don’t forget to check the OFATV trails map or the QuadON smart phone application for active updates re: construction and routes under maintenance.

Happy trails 🙂

Come Ride With Us!



Side-by-Sides Welcome on Rail Trail (2021)


Dufferin Grey ATV Club, the County of Dufferin and the County of Grey are pleased to announce that side-by-sides (maximum width 54″) are welcome on the rail trail and in Harkaway Forest when this riding season begins.

After several years of negotiations with impressive perseverance, DGATV’s Board of Directors are happy to make this announcement — a crowning achievement to celebrate DGATV’s 15th Anniversary!

Side-by-side owners have shown a lot of interest in making full use of DGATV’s trails and we expect that the club will garner new members as a result of this terrific news.

Adjustments will be made to the trails to accommodate the width limit (i.e. gate tweaks) over the summer season.  If you see an area that needs attention please contact info@dgatv.ca with location and specifics.

Larger side-by-sides (maximum width 65″) are still welcome to use the blue-markered rail trail by-pass.

While side-by-sides are generally welcome on Ontario Federation of ATV Clubs (OFATV) trails, remember to check with the local club before you ride to ensure that side-by-sides are accepted on their trails.

Looking forward to a great season ATV & Side-by-side Riders!
