Hello Winter

Despite a somewhat chaotic summer, it was a good riding season.

While we could not offer club rides or other large events due to the ever-changing health regulations mandated by the government’s pandemic response, DGATV had record memberships with a lot of new riders looking to enjoy the great outdoors and learn the ropes.

We always advise new riders to communicate with our more experienced riders by utilizing our private facebook group “Dufferin Grey ATV Club (Group)”  fb-002-teeny

Also don’t forget to check out our facebook page “Dufferin Grey ATV Club Inc.” for news from our Directors.

DGATV is also available on Twitter and Instagram.

Checkout www.dgatv.ca for official updates.

Looking ahead to the 2021 season, ATVing on the public trails generally starts May 1st (weather-permitting) and stays open to November 30th or until snow cover.  Once the snow plows are out, ATV rider safety becomes an issue.

Exceptions are:

  • Harkaway Forest opens to riding Tuesday-after-Victoria Day-weekend and closes on October 15th.
  • Grey County roads opens to riding on April 15th and closes on November 17th.
  • Owen Sound and Shelburne open to riding on April 15th.
Note:  All dates are tentative dependent on the current pandemic status and the “stay at home” order at the time of opening.

Municipal roads are open but don’t confuse Municipal and County roads … it could cost you a ticket. Check the municipal by-laws (other links) and google maps for clarification.  Please “know before you go”.

Unfortunately Walters Falls will be closed to winter riding this year.  Part of the property has been sold and we have yet to contact the new owner.

Remember to stay tuned to our social media at the start of season.

Enjoy your winter and holiday season!
