The Crown Land trails that we enjoy are a
very precious resource. In keeping with the OF4WD
primary mandate of ensuring the sustainability of
4-wheel drive-based recreational activities in
Ontario, we are launching the Adopt-a-Trail Program. With the variety of users that access these
trails, the conditions are subject to change with
regards to surface type and environmental impact.
OF4WD’s adopt-a-trail initiative is designed to
allow members to become involved and take part in
activities improving the longevity of the trails we
all enjoy. Members involved with the program will
monitor and report on trail conditions, to ensure
any issue can be reported and acted on as needed.
How it Works
Individuals, groups, or clubs can
volunteer to adopt a trail and take care of it as if
it were their own. Much like the Adopt-A-Road
program with the province of Ontario adoptees will
ride the trail a minimum of twice a year, at the
beginning and end of the season. Participants will
gather and record information, in a simple form
reporting pictures, trail conditions and possible
problem areas with concerns to the environment or
other user group needs.
Information will be submitted to a Trail
Coordinator within the OF4WD organization where
statistics and issues will be recorded. This
information will feed into our Trail Maintenance
Program trail clean-ups and maintenance activities
can be organized; from
cleaning up brush to fixings culverts and water
