Twelve volunteers were out this morning cutting open another road allowance to connect sections of the new Ottawa trail expansion.  This beautiful wooded section will be a great addition to the trails.  If you’re interested in helping expand the trails into the Osgoode/Greely area, please let us know at info@nvatvc.org.

Culvert Installations Have Begun!

Several culverts are required at some major road crossings prior to opening some of the new trails in Ottawa.  Installations for some of these culverts took place today.  These culverts allow for safer crossings at Stagecoach Road and Manotick Station Road.  We’re now one major step closer to opening some new trails!

Grant Money for Ottawa Trails?

Tomorrow volunteers will meet with contractors to generate quotes that will be used for the NTC grant.

If accepted, this grant money will go a long way in repairing damage to ATV trails in Osgood that have been damaged by trucks trespassing on the trails.
