In general DGATV’s season on the public trails starts around May 1st (weather-permitting) and goes until November 30th or until snow cover. However, dates depend on where you ride. Please check our social media for seasonal confirmation.

Harkaway Forest is closed to ATVs on October 15th (until June 20th).

Grey County closes their county roads to ATVs on November 10th.

All other public trails including the rail trail stay open to ATVs until November 30th or snow cover, whichever comes first.

On the private trails at Walters Falls Tract, ATVs can be used year-round. It is recommended that appropriate safety precautions be taken in this remote location, especially in the winter.  Tracks are recommended in winter.  Ride with a companion and let people know where you are going. Cell phone service may not always be available.

Note that other clubs have different open/close dates — it all comes down to the local by-laws and landowner agreements.  The onus is on You, the Rider, to know the rules of the area before you ride.
