It’s that time of year again — DGATV’s Harkaway Forest trail is now closed for the season.

Riders, please respect our landowner agreement and keep your machine out of the forest.

Your participation is crucial in keeping this tract available to us.

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 🙂
