Across all seasons, ATVs of every type navigate Lesser Slave’s vast wooded terrain, from the well-marked Peace River Trail and sandy stretches of Chisholm to the largely-uncharted boreal forest areas. Some of the back lakes in the MD’s eastern region can only be accessed through trail riding.
With the recent opening of the Peace River trail from Sawdy to Moose Portage, riders have even more access to the back country. With sand and mud to cut lines and hard packed trails, the area is full of great riding for all to enjoy.
Rules are in place for a reason.
Where you Can't Go
No riding within any “Open Space” areas. This includes parks, day-use sites, campgrounds, playgrounds, trails, vacant land and environmental reserves.
Where you Can Go
You can ride your OHV on a highway (roadway), or in an area set aside and clearly marked as a designated trail or area for OHV use. That’s it.
Helmets are a Must
The Traffic Safety Act includes an OHV Helmet Law. This means that helmets are mandatory for those riding OHVs on public land, unless otherwise exempt.
