Trails are a wonderful way to spend an enjoyable day, relaxing and taking in the sights. You will see some spectacular scenery and natural areas as you travel the trails. We ask that you observe these few rules of the trail etiquette so that everyone's outing will be fun and you will help preserve trails for future generations.
1. Please stay on the main trails! Some areas have rare sensitive plants and small animals that can be easily damaged or destroyed. Don't make new trails or use unmarked (unsigned) trails.
2. Some areas may require user fees. Please prepare to pay a fee.
3. Please respect neighbouring landowners by staying off private trails and property. Avoid excessive noise.
4. Please leave the trail as you found it; whatever you pack in, pack out.
5. Please leave the wildflowers and wildlife for others to enjoy.
6. Keep dogs on a leash at all times while on the trail.
7. ALL USERS to slow to a walking speed when meeting up with other USERS and be prepared to stop.
8. Respect and be courteous to other users who are also using shared use trails. Always yield right of way to other trail users who are approaching or passing. Be certain to communicate in advance with riders of Horses, Dog Teams and those walking pets.

You need a valid Driver's License to legally drive an ATV in Ontario. Ontario honours Driver's Licences issued by other jurisdictions. Additional permits may be required by some trails.
In order to ride Ontario's trails, you must have insurance for your ATV.
