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 has a number of private land use permits as well. 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. 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. As an association we have successfully pursued Highway Traffic Act changes with the Municipality that allow touring via road access linkages. 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. Many private trails in our network including the Haliburton Rail Trail are wardened so be forewarned.
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. 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. Travel with friends and use the buddy system. Make sure at least half of the ATV's you travel with have working winches and bring a tow strap, snatch block and tree strap.

We live for the outdoors
One look at the map and we knew for certain, the first thing we needed to do was to tackle one of the red expert trails. We would need to traverse a few green easy trails and a blue intermediate trail to get to the expert trail, but we knew the expert trail was going to set the tone for our weekend to determine where we stacked up on the experience level for the area for the new riders reading this, we do not recommend heading directly to the expert level trails until you have reached that level of riding experience. Limbered up from a few loops, we headed directly to the closest expert trail to us, the 96! Not for the faint of heart, the 96 lived up to its expert rating. It was a tough go, but we felt we had set the bar high for the rest of the trip. The VRT was an easy level trail, as expected for a rail trail—flat, wide, and straight. Lunch on the Locks.
