Welcome to the Johnstown ATV (JATV) Club website.

Our All-Terrain-Vehicle (ATV) club is located in Eastern Ontario, Canada. Our trail system extends from Angelo’s Truck Stop near Johnstown to the Limerick Forest South Tract and consists of approximately 200kms of trails catering to die-hard and casual riders. We have a purpose built tunnel under highway 416, which allows us to have trails on both the east and west sides of the highway. The trails are open all year (including winter) with the exception of closure during the spring thaw and district hunting seasons. Trail conditions vary throughout the year. Bring your quad or side by side and have a great ride.

A valid Ontario Federation of All-Terrain Vehicle (OFATV) membership or OFATV day pass is required to ride on OFATV club trails. As a member of OFATV you have access to thousands of kilometers of trails across Ontario.  Through reciprocal agreements you can also ride all Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance (EOTA) trails and New Brunswick ATV Federation trails.

Important Message


All ATV trails are closed for the spring thaw until further notice. Trails are expected to open 13 May 2017, but weather conditions will ultimately decide. Please respect the landowners, the volunteers, and the trails. Please stay off the trails until they are re-opened as damage caused by riding during the spring thaw can often not be repaired.  Please check this website regularly for any updates (posted 4 Mar 2017)

Limerick Forest use of trails by motorized vehicle implementation program:

The United Counties of Leeds & Greville, owner of the Limerick Forest, has agreed to work with organizations representing off-road motorcycles, ATVs and ORVs (side by sides) on the implementation of a two year pilot program for the development, use, and management of trails in Limerick Forest.  The Johnstown ATV Club (JATVC) supported by Ontario Federation of All-Terrain Vehicles (OFATV) and the Bytown Motorcycle Association (BMA) supported by Ontario Federation of Trail Riders (OFTR) are actively working with the Forest Manager to implement the program for the 2017 and 2018 riding seasons.  The end result will be that ATV’s and ORVs (side by sides) riding in Limerick Forest will require an OFATV membership and off-road motorcyclists will require an OFTR membership.  All motorized vehicles will be required to be plated and insured.  The new requirement for OFATV/OFTR membership will position the JATVC and BMA to more actively contribute to the management, maintenance and expansion of the trails in Limerick Forest, benefitting all forest users.
