Experience ATVing in Peterborough & the Kawarthas
All Terrain. All Terrific.
On an ATV, you might start your day on flat, easy terrain, but before the morning is out, you’ll be looking for steep hills, switchback turns and the motherlode for all ATVers: mud. “We like a challenge to our ride,” says Phil Higgins, president of one of the local trails club, which has—so far—built and maintained 120 kilometres of ATV trails in Peterborough & the Kawarthas and shares them with other users. “We also like to get away from it all—as far away as possible.”
That’s why Phil is rightly proud of the trail system in Peterborough & the Kawarthas. “It goes everywhere,” he says, “especially where cars can’t go.” Among his favourites are the out-of-the-way, winding routes through the woods that lead to destinations that most folks rarely see: Little Jack Falls, the wetlands at Blairton, the lookout at the Nephton mine.
Dotted throughout our region are lots of other scenic hidden gems and an ATV might be just the best way to find them.
ATVing brings out the inner explorer in all of us. Whether you head out for an afternoon or make an overnight adventure of it, the ride is all about discovering what’s over the next hill and around the next bend. There are limitless possibilities here.
