RIDE WITH US!

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.

JATVC volunteers at work. It was a hot, humid, mosquito and deer fly-infested but very satisfying day conducting trail clearing/trimming/maintenance today. We worked between JATVC markers 160 to 162 (Harvey/Bolton intersection to Land O Nod Rd).

Ron Foster, Ken Barkman and Randy Marvell worked on this section recently to open it up for further clearing. Thanks for volunteering clearing the trails today to Pat Marceau, Marcel Boisvenue, Paul Folusewych, Ken Barkman, Murray Robinson, Hugh Stratton, Mitch Lunge and Guy Morgan. (Guy just joined the club and showed up for work Today...awesome!). The trail side BBQ was a much needed and appreciated break. Thanks Pat.

We’re getting everything ready for our next big JATVC Fall ride in September 2019. If you are an OFATV member and enjoy riding Johnstown ATV Club trails, please come out and spend some time conducting trail maintenance with us. Volunteers are the only way that keeps our trails open and safe to ride for everyone’s enjoyment. Without volunteers pitching in occasionally, we won’t have trails to ride safely. If you like to ride, please take some time to pitch in to keep the trails open. One method to see what trail maintenance activities are occurring within the JATVC trails system is to go onto Facebook and search “”JATVC Trail Repair”. Once in, click on “join the group”. Once accepted, you’ll see when we have our trail maintenance activities. JATVC volunteer hours are acknowledged. You can win prizes and discount coupons each year based on the amount of hours that you volunteer, not only during trail maintenance activities but also during club events during ride registration, trail wardens and other activities. For those that are so inclined and have the time, our club is also looking for two positions within the club. Marketing and Special Events directors. If interested in becoming more involved with our club as a volunteer, please visit our website volunteer tab at johnstownatvclub.org/volunteer-interest-form/ and tell us what you are interested in. The club can only succeed with volunteers. Please join our team today to make the JATVC trail system a success.

Trail Update.
We only have one trail closed now, Burnie Road between 242 & 244. This trail will remain closed until it freezes over and we groom it for this winter.
The section between intersection 19 & 240 known as the Patterson Water Crossing was opened at noon today. There is still one bad hole however the bypass is pretty good. See video.
When northbound stay to the left of the blue stakes. The hole on the right has no bottom!

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 two year pilot 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 during 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 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. It is hoped that this new partnership between the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville and the JATVC and BMA will help to 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. We appreciate your cooperation in this endeavour.
