Boundary Regional Motorized Trail Network
This motorized-friendly trail network was developed by the Grand Forks ATV Club in partnership with the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations. The development coincided with the club’s New Horizons for Seniors Project which focused on encouraging local seniors and near seniors to get up, get out, join in, and ride safe. As part of this project the club held and took part in numerous events and activities in the Grand Forks area, offered multiple ATV safety courses, developed the Boundary Regional Motorized Trail Network, and purchased a few GPS units for members to use while navigating these trails.
We have many public and private sponsors,without whom the work would not be done
