No Meeting & Deer Hunt Update There will be no club meeting this month, and meetings will be on hiatus until February 2024. The trail will close the following weeks due to the Controlled Deer hunt: Nov 6 - Nov 12 Nov 20 - Nov 26 Dec 4 - Dec 10 Trail will reopen between each hunt week assuming weather conditions stay favorable. Please note that the trail will remain closed for this 2023 season following the last deer hunt week.

Update on the Innerkip Main Trail

Update on the Innerkip Main Trail Construction on the south side has began after many unfortunate delays in the process. The Insurance company is still adamant there to be no public access. With fall approaching and lots of construction still to be completed, consider the trail closed for the remaining of this year. We will communicate when the trail can reopen. The north side of trail across the road from the parking lot still remains open for now until hunting season.

Trail Information

Welcome back to another year of trail riding fun at Great Lakes ATV club, 2023 edition. As most of you know we have faced many challenges over the years keeping ATVing available in southern Ontario. Sometimes it’s the best of times and sometimes it’s the worst of times, but we do our very best to keep trails available near your doorstep. Update on Cathcart Currently no solution in place yet. The current climate of the local government isn’t ideal for our sport, and we are unsure if when or of the tide will shift.

Innerkip Trail Winter Update

The Innerkip trail remains CLOSED for ATV riding. Considerations for determining whether or not trail can open for winter riding: trail is frozen overall trail condition to ensure safety of riders parking lot accessibility long term forecast in favor of long cold dry period A team has been out to clear up all fallen trees from the storm at end of December, but the trail/nor the parking lot is truly accessible. When / if the trail conditions are favorable for opening a communication to all members will be sent out.

Trails closed until next riding season

Trails closed until next riding season The Innerkip trail is CLOSED to allow safe controlled deer hunt. The trail will remain closed until next riding season, unless conditions are favourable to allow us to open during the winter months. If this opening happens, we will communicate to the members. The trail closure allowes us to complete trail maintenance and allow the land to settle. The Cathcart trail remains CLOSED. Thank you all for a great year!!
