Our Trails are now CLOSED for Spring Thaw.


Due to the warm temperatures and flooding areas 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 but mother nature will dictate. 

Respectfully, Pat Marceau – President (Mar 15th, 2021)


Get your Pass, which allows you to ride on all OFATV trails throughout Ontario and reciprocal Province 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 Husky Truck Stop (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. Plus, for an extra $100 you can ride all of Quebec ATV Federation Trails which can be purchased through the OFATV website.

The Québec Top Up permit that was started last year was a success, 237 OFATV members took advantage of it. Starting May 1st you can purchase the Québec Top Up permit for the 2021/2022 season at vente.fqcq.qc.ca. The $100 + tax permit is valid from May 1st, 2021 to April 30th, 2022. The price remains the same no matter when the permit is bought. Please have your current OFATV permit number available when you are ready to purchase. The sticker will be sent from the Québec office so please expect potential delays in delivery from Canada Post. We received confirmation from FQCQ that the email received from them upon permit purchase is sufficient as a temporary permit until your sticker is received. You may want to print the email below in case trail Wardens from the FQCQ are not aware of this rule. Make sure to check the Interactive Map from the website or the iQuad application before heading to Québec.
