Legal Riding Areas


The 3 “L’s” Land Use, Lobbying and Legals

The OFTR currently has Land Use Agreements with;

Simcoe County Forest

Sommerville Forest

Limerick Forest

Larose Forest

We also have regular dialogue with Ganaraska Forest and have negotiated riding rights with a portion of the Victoria Rail Trail. We are constantly working with local, regional, provincial and federal governments to preserve existing riding areas and gain access to new areas.

Crown land is available for use by off road motorized vehicles under the freedom of use policy unless otherwise posted. This applies to areas in and around Haliburton, Highlands East and Calabogie. A good reference is the “Crown Land Use Policy Atlas”

Note: It is important to realize our greatest threat to riding areas is our own code of conduct. Noisy bikes and inconsiderate behaviour by a few can ruin it for many.
