OVRT is closed to motorized vehicles until early April

Spring will be upon us in just a few short days; with that comes warmer temps, melting snow, rain and mud!!

As a result, effective immediately (Tuesday, March 16, 2021), the OVRT is closed to motorized vehicles until early April to allow for the trail to dry out. Your patience is appreciated.

Spring Closure Notice can be found here: https://www.lanarkcounty.ca/en/roads-trails-and-transit/recreational-trails.aspx

In accordance with the OVRT Trail Management Plan, this is an annual occurrence and as per the By-Law, no ATV’s are permitted on the trail prior to April 1st (or later depending on the weather and trail conditions).
