Trail Status

Periodic trail status updates are posted here.
If you have updates you would like to share with others, email them to info@nvatvc.org.

Warden Reports

NVATVC wardens were present on all trails today.  They report the trails are muddy, but passable.  Trees fallen in the recent windstorms have been cleared.

Trespassing on Closed Trails

Trespassing on closed trails leads to trail closures and hurts all ATV enthusiasts.

Please obey the rules and report trespassers to ensure we continue to have trails available to ride in the future.

High Winds and Fallen Trees

Following the high winds last night, please be aware that there is likely debris and trees down blocking some trails. Club volunteers will hopefully be out this weekend to ensure the trails are open.

If you encounter debris you aren’t able to remove, please send an email to trails@nvatvc.org with details about the obstacle and the location so we can have our volunteers take care of it.

Thank you.

Unseasonably Wet Trails

20141123_113130_resizedWardens report that trails are unseasonably wet.  Typically trails are dry and rides are fast and easy at this time of year.  With the wet summer we’ve had, the trails are currently wet and muddy.  Ice is beginning to form, but is not strong enough to support ATVs yet.  Please ride carefully, stay dry and stay warm.

 

Trails are OPEN!

With the last day of gun hunting for deer over, the trails have reopened.

Today we got out first accumulation of snow.  Rest assured that club volunteers are busy preparing the grooming equipment for another busy year of winter trail riding.

Trails Closed for Hunting

All Nation Valley ATV Club trails are closed for two weeks during deer hunting.  Many of our trails are on private property where land owners hunt deer for two weeks each fall.  To respect our generous land owners, and for your safety, please obay the trail closures.  Trails will open again on November 17th.

Hyndman Road Culverts

New culverts have been installed at both trail entrances.  Where there used to be a steep wooden ramp that was often slippery due to perpetually wet conditions, there is now a gradual stone ramp and a shiny new culvert.  Special thanks to North Dundas Public Works.

Wet Trails

Multiple riders on the weekend reported very wet trail conditions.

Trails are all passable, but expect spring water levels and mud.

Warden Report

Wardens on the trails today reported that trails are muddy with standing water from the recent rain, but easily passable.

August 17 Trail Work

Before

Wardens discovered that the approach to the 1000′ boardwalk had become badly rutted and stopped to make repairs.  ATVs should be able to get up on the boardwalk much easier now.  They also cut several trees that had fallen across the trails during recent thunderstorms.
