Grey County embarks on one-year pilot project with Ontario Federation of Trail Riders

Grey County Rail Trail

Grey County is embarking on a pilot project with the Ontario Federation of Trail Riders (OFTR) to allow some off-road motorcycles on the rail trail between Rockford and Dundalk.

This section of the multi-use rail trail already allows ATV riders, and this project will give OFTR the same access. Grey County has agreed to a one-year trial with OFTR and the local chapter club, the Dufferin Rooftop Recreational Riders, for their members.

To use the trail, riders must be insured, plated for trail use, have an OFTR permit, and be no louder than 94 decibels. Both motorcycle and ATV riders are also required to adhere to posted trail signage including speed limits.

County trails and forests are meant to be enjoyed by all recreational users. Safety and enjoyment of the properties is a priority for all users. Please use trails responsibly.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
