Few of the top places to go off-road driving in Ontario

California Road Trail

This 10-kilometre trail in Lanark is suitable for walking, hiking, and off-road driving with an ATV or 4WD and is open year-round. You’ll find several offshoots from the trail, which are old logging roads to hunting camps.

Concession Lake Trail

Concession Lake Trail is a 20.47-kilometre trail located in Peterborough and is one of the few places where off-road 4DW enthusiasts can cut loose.
