Where To Ride

Canada is one of the best places on earth to ride an OHV. That said, there are places you can ride and places you can’t ride. The best way to know where you can and where you can’t ride is to join a local club.

Clubs and provincial rider federations create and maintain trail networks. In some cases, the organizations have signed agreements with land owners to allow trail access across private land. Clubs and federations also work with parks, conservation areas and public land use zones to build and maintain trails. Most designated Crown Lands are available to ride on. Other riding areas are in recreational and competition riding parks. If you are a club member, the organization’s insurance may cover your use and passage. If you are not a club member you would be considered trespassing.


Many of the clubs and federations have trail maps or digital trail programs that show you where the best riding areas are. They might also rate the trail difficulty so that riders don’t get in over their heads. Clubs also have organized rides, social events, poker runs and great events to welcome new riders and keep member riders having fun.

One of the greatest reasons for trail closure is trespassing on private property. Quite often your local club will negotiate access agreements with local landowners. It’s always important to stay on the approved trails and not venture off, particularly on private property. It’s also very important to ride safely and responsibly – trail access is a privilege which all riders are responsible for.
