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