How To Report Illegal Use

We are still getting emails about illegal dirt bikes and ATVs on the trail despite clearly marked gates that show they are not allowed on the Kawartha Trans Canada Trail. Did you know that less than 2% of Trans Canada Trail routes in Ontario allow ATVs? Eventually this will be 0%. These routes receive no funding for trail maintenance or enhancements from Trans Canada Trail. The Kawartha Trans Canada Trail is a volunteer run, charitable organization - our 54 kilometre trail is one of the sections that make up the 24,000 kilometre Trans Canada Trail nationally. In 2017, the Trans Canada Trail will be connected from coast-to-coast-to-coast and will be the longest trail in the World.

To report illegal use by ATVs or dirt bikes please do the following:

  1. Avoid any confrontation. We do not want anyone hurt or insulted.
  2. Note time, date and location.
  3. Report the illegal use to the Lindsay Police if the location is in Lindsay or Ops Township, or to the OPP for all other locations of the trail. 
  4. Send a description of the dirt bike or ATV to the “Contact Us” form: http://ktct.ca/contact
  5. If you are certain of the location where the trespasser lives, include this address in your email to us and we will send a letter to that address.

You can also send an email to info@ktct.ca

Our volunteers work hard to keep the trail safe and well maintained for the enjoyment of residents of, and visitors to, Kawartha Lakes.
