ABOUT OUR TRAILS
Haliburton ATV Association has one of the largest mapped, signed and insured trail system in Ontario. The club works closely with the Haliburton County Snowmobile Association in their efforts to maintain trails and trail infrastructure in the Haliburton Highlands. HATVA Association does not operate on any snowmobile trails when winter trail grooming begins.
In the spring, summer and fall, HATVA members participate in official club rides, informal trail rides and trail maintenance throughout the HATVA mapped system. HATVA has a land use permit for County trails. HATVA has a number of private land use permits as well. Approximately 50% of the Haliburton County is Crown Land. Please note many snowmobile trails run on to private land trails where the snowmobile club has land use permits. Snowmobile trails on private land are not open to ATV's at any time of the year.
HATVA Trails are located throughout Haliburton and into Muskoka, Kawartha, Peterborough, Almaguin, and Madawaska regions. Trail difficulty varies from forest access roads to extreme deep woods paths that require winches as standard equipment. It is highly recommended that you tour with a club member that knows the trails. Along with the HATVA map, Topo maps, crown land maps and snowmobile maps are a necessity for adventures and they should be cross referenced as required to insure private land owners are respected. Our club has zero tolerance for drinking on the trails and supports responsible ATVing in the spirit of Tread Lightly.
In addition to private land trails in Haliburton County there is a Municipal owned rail line that runs north into the Haliburton Village area from the Kinmount. HATVA wardens are empowered as bylaw officers and together with OPP Save Team officers, we ensure that riders have either a HATVA, KATVA, LOB or Quad Niagara membership pass on their ATV. No other club trail passes are accepted. As an association we have successfully pursued Highway Traffic Act #316 changes with the Municipality that allow touring via road access linkages.
ATV/SxS'ers should never travel alone. Crown Land trails are vast and it is easy to become lost so please ride prepared. One or more of our members may informally join you to explore the Haliburton area if you are not familiar with our trails. You can find contact information in the Contact Us section of this web site.
Remember, all trail users must have HATVA membership pass for private and municipal trails. Many private trails in our network including the Haliburton Rail Trail are wardened so be forewarned. All of HATVA trails are insured and any HATVA member or HATVA associate club, or HATVA pass holder may use our trails.
Trespassing Is A CRIME!
ATVers who trespass do a disservice to the entire ATV community. It's illegal - if you don't know, don't go. Just because there is a trail somewhere, does not make it okay for ATV's to use it. Only the designated trails on the HATVA map are legal ATV trails.
Landowners: If an issue occurs, please take photos, including the plate #'s and report it to the OPP so charges can be laid. Changes are on their way for the Trespassing Act.
