Please be aware that all trails in Limerick Forest are now open for motorized vehicles. We appreciate your cooperation in helping to maintain our trails by not using them while they are closed. Excessive rutting is dangerous and expensive to repair. Please remember that you must now be a member of the Ontario Federation of Trail Riders (OFTR) or the Ontario Federation of ATV Clubs (OFATV) if you wish to ride the trails in Limerick Forest on a dirt bike or ATV.
