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 and PEI ATV Federation trails.

Johnstown ATV Club

A good education reminder to everyone. Straps only work if they are attached to the trailer, but the other end should also be attached to the frame of the ATV. Plastic does not hold anything. As per the CASI Ride Course, we recommend 4 straps, which each have a minimum rating of 50% of the overall vehicles weight. The straps should be connected to 4 independent locations of the ATV or side by side. The racks on most ATVs are not rated to carry 50% of the weight of the vehicle; therefore they are not an adequate place to use as a tie zone. The best area to secure your ATV is below the suspension on the lower control arms or other such suitable locations. If you use the suspension of the ATV to hold it secure you are putting extreme pressure on your tie straps when the vehicle bounces while travelling on the trailer. The energy released in an accident is many times the weight of the cargo. Flying ATVs hurt.🚨 Straps only work IF THEY ARE ATTACHED...gravity isn't enough (and yes, there was only that one strap). 🤦‍♂️

ATV and Dirt Bike use in Limerick Forest:

The United Counties of Leeds & Grenville, owner of the Limerick Forest, has signed an agreement on July 20th, 2017 to work with organizations representing off-road motorcycles, ATVs and ORVs (side by sides) on the implementation of a program for the development, use, and management of trails in Limerick Forest. The Johnstown ATV Club (JATVC) supported by the Ontario Federation of All-Terrain Vehicles (OFATV) and the Bytown Motorcycle Association (BMA) supported by the Ontario Federation of Trail Riders (OFTR) will be actively working with the Forest Manager throughout this program. The result is 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 in Limerick must be legally plated and insured. This partnership will provide an opportunity for trail wardens representing both organizations to be out on the trails in an effort to answer questions and provide assistance re the OFATV and OFTR Code of Ethics. Trail wardens will engage motorized user in Limerick in a friendly and positive manner about safe and responsible riding. This new partnership between the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville and the JATVC and BMA will help maintain and improve the Limerick Forest trail network for all user groups by educating riders about the perils of drinking and driving, the potential damage to the reputation of the sport due to unnecessarily loud vehicles, driving without plates and insurance, littering and the need to respect the ecological integrity of the forest. A healthy and sustainably managed forest will ensure the long-term availability of our trail system, benefiting everyone who visits the forest. (posted Aug 20th, 2019)
