Letters on Mandatory ATV Trail Passes


On October 27, 2010, Federation President Daniel Boucher sent letters to the Premier David Alward and to the Minister of Public Safety Hon. Robert Trevors on the issue of Mandatory ATV Trail Passes.

President Boucher indicated that the Federation will bring soon ATV issues to the attention of the new government and its appropriate Cabinet ministers. The President stressed, however, that there is some urgency right now for the government to proclaim changes to the legislation to make the ATV Trail Passes mandatory. 

The President made the point that most of our funding to operate as a Federation, to develop our Provincial ATV Trail Network and its infrastructures comes from ATV registration fees deposited into the Trail Management Trust Fund. A mandatory ATV trail pass system will increase our funding base, allowing us to expand our support of outdoor recreational in N.B. It is our goal to ensure all New Brunswickers have access to a well- managed provincial ATV trail system, so they too may "View New Brunswick from the Inside."

The President also sent the letters to all Government MLAs.

Meeting with DNR on Land Access Requests


On Monday October 25, 2010, Federation Trail Coordinator met in Fredericton with a representative from the Department of Natural Resources to review our requests for land access.

The following requests were discussed:

  1. Club Baie-Pointe VTT/ATV

    The request for the region of Hells Gate for a trail from Highway 11 to Baie Ste-Anne has been lost, apparently, it by Department officials. It will be possible to build this winter trail of 1.2 km parallel to the existing snowmobile trail. This option will be pursued.
  2. Club VTT/ATV Chaleur

    The request for Grant Brook area will be signed by DNR in the next few days and a copy will be sent to the club to begin their work. And it brought an application on the carpet for a long road designated MT. It is a path that brings bikers safe from snowmobilers under an agreement for joint use of the shelter.
  3. Albert County Trail Blazers

    Several cases will be discussed soon by the Trails Coordinator and the club: Ing's Interval Bridge, Ing's Interval, sections on Crown land, sections on DOT public roads, conflict with snowmobilers, and issues with the Canadian Railroad Historical Association.
  4. York North Ridge Runners

    We are waiting for the response from DOT for the section of road from the abandoned rail line to access services.
  5. Club VTT/ATV Népisiquit

    We are waiting for a response from the club on a small section of trail to be built to avoid a snowmobile trail. We are waiting for a response from DOT for some public road sections. We are also working to find a solution to the Bass River Bridge.
  6. Victoria County ATV Club

    We are waiting for the HUP from DOT. DOT has verbally confirmed to have accepted the section of Route Leonard Colony. The permit is coming soon.
  7. Club Sentiers d'Amitié

    We are waiting for the HUP from DOT for Labrie Road. DOT has verbally confirmed their agreement. The permit is coming soon.
  8. Rusagonis ATV Club

    The section of trail that joins the clubs between several clubs in Region 7 is approved in principle by the DNR and we are waiting for their signed document. It was confirmed that there could be two months of waiting.
  9. Petty Trail Blazers

    We are waiting for the information requested from the club.
  10. Mad-Vic ATV Association

    The request for a camp lot lease has been accepted and the club should receive the document soon. The Trails Coordinator must also prepare a trail map for a forthcoming meeting with the Town of Grand Falls on the use of the Saint John River Bridge.
  11. Dungarvon ATV Club

    The application is to use the abandoned rail line between Durham Bridge and Parker Road. A meeting was held October 25, 2010 in Doaktown with the mayors of Doaktown, Upper Blackville and Miramichi to solicit their support. The Councils of these municipalities will decide soon and they will inform DNR.
  12. Club VTT du Haut Madawaska

    The Trails Coordinator has prepared a map with a proposed new trail to try to circumvent a private landowner.
  13. Club VTT 2000

    We are waiting for a response from JD Irving after providing them with documents they have requested.
