Our Trails are now CLOSED for Spring Thaw.

Due to the warm temperatures we are forced to close our trails for the safety of our riders and to preserve our trails for the drier season. Please respect our landowners, our trails and our hard working volunteers that maintain the Clubs trails.  Riding during the spring thaw creates ruts in the soft ground that is very difficult to repair when the trails dry out. We will monitor the trail conditions and let everyone know when they are safe and ready. We tentatively open our trails the second weekend of May, however we might be able to open early, but mother nature will dictate.

Respectfully, Pat Marceau – President (Mar 9th, 2024)


Get your Pass, which allows you to ride on all OFATV trails throughout Ontario and reciprocal Provincial Clubs.

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 the 17 Acre Travel Centre & Restaurant (Angelo’s) near Johnstown to Merrickville and area, including west to North Augusta and consists of approximately 300kms 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 deer hunting rifle seasons. Trail conditions vary throughout the year. Bring your ATV 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 New Brunswick ATV Federation trails, PEI ATV Federation trails and Nova Scotia ATV Association Trails.

Great insurance company! Awesome prices. Thankfully haven’t had to file a claim yet so we’d have to see. Strictly on the ATV side they were far cheaper for the exact same coverage than Allstate was. Whole reason why I changed!

The next Club Meeting will be our Annual General Meeting held at the Limerick Forest Interpretive center at 9am
