Ottawa Chapter

In 2013 NVATVC partnered with the City of Ottawa to create a bylaw allowing ATVs on select rural roads in the Osgoode Ward of Ottawa.  A License of Occupation was signed on June 26, 2013, allowing the ATV club to build a multi-use trail system utilizing a network of unmaintained roads and City property. The intention is for the ATV club, through membership sales, grants and sponsorships, to build and maintain a multi-use trail system to be shared with non-motorized users such as walkers/hikers, mountain bikes, horseback riders and cross country skiers.

The spring thaw is upon us, and effective immediately ALL NATION VALLEY ATV CLUB TRAILS ARE CLOSED until further notice.

Please respect the law, our land owners and our volunteers by staying off closed trails.  Damage caused during the spring thaw is often not repairable and can lead to loss of trails.  Anyone caught riding closed trails will be charged with trespassing.

Trails are expected to open again mid-May, but ultimately the weather will be the determining factor.  With an early spring we’re hoping we can open the trails early as well.  Please check back for updates.

Trails Closed for Hunting

All NVATVC trails are closed for two weeks for white-tailed deer hunting. Trails will open again on November 19. NVATVC maintains relationships with many private land owners who make our trail system possible. Many of them hunt their property during these two weeks. Please respect our land owners and your safety by observing trail closures during these two weeks. Thank you!

Trails are OPEN!

NVATVC Trails are Open
Let the good times roll. Trails are open again for the winter season.  Be safe! Volunteers will be around the loop this weekend to inspect for hazards (downed trees bridges that require attention), so tread lightly and be cautious.

NOTE* – Pym Trail and Boscell Trail remain closed until further notice, but all other trails are open.

Your Attention Please!

This is the last weekend to ride before we close the trails for the Spring Thaw. Trails will be closed effective Monday. Have a safe weekend!

Reminder: Trails will be closed Nov 6-19th – DEER SEASON

Nation Valley ATV Club’s trails will be closed as usual for the 2 weeks of deer season. Trails are closed from November 6th – November 19th.  NVATVC’s trails span many private landowner’s properties who graciously allow us to use their property for most of the year, so please respect their time using their own property for the 2 weeks of deer season by remaining off of the trails.

Trails to Open May 27

It’s been a long, wet spring but we’re finally able to announce that trails will open on Saturday May 27!

Some areas are still wet. Please do your best to avoid damaging these areas, and watch for deep water.  Volunteers will be out taking the signs down and clearing any fallen trees on Saturday.

Update to Trail Closure

Due to the large amount of rainfall we will not be opening the trails in the next couple of weeks. Opening the trails in these wet conditions causes irreparable damage. We will monitor the conditions of the trails and will post any updates as soon as we have them.

Ride For Dad Success

Thank you to everyone who supported our 5th annual Ride for Dad event.  With the support of our land owners, community and 299 registered riders we were able to raise $76,000 for prostate cancer research and awareness this year, which makes this the largest ATV charity event in Canada.  It means a lot to us as a club to see this kind of support for a cause we feel strongly about and to be able to contribute to our community by hosting this event.  Make no mistake – the club hosts the event but it’s the participants and community support that makes it a success.  Thank you all for your contributions.


Trails are Open!!

Let the good times roll. Trails are open again for the winter season. The trail between Loughlin Ridge Road and Shaw Road is still currently closed, please use the signed by-pass around (using Boundary Road). Be safe! Volunteers will be around the loop this weekend to inspect for hazards (downed trees bridges that require attention), so tread lightly and be cautious.

Let the Ride for Dad Preparations Begin!

Volunteers were out over the weekend fixing board-walks and bridges in preparation for the big event on March 5th.

We’ll be honest, Raphael did most of the work.
