All Kinds of All Terrain
In the Parkland, off-roading’s been popular on all kinds of awesome trails for quite some time. But as a whole, the sport of ATV off-road trail riding is exploding in Manitoba. The province, in conjunction with The All Terrain Vehicle Association of Manitoba (ATVMB) is showing support for ATV’s growth by working towards a provincial wide trail system. We’re glad to see Manitoba get on track with off-roading and welcome new riders to our area.

Duck Mountain FOREST, Manitoba
Recreational ATV use
is allowed on trails found within Duck Mountain Forest- and it's a ton of fun!

When you're in the Forest, there are no ATV use restrictions. You can ride ATVs anywhere you're brave enough to go if there is no travel ban due to extreme fire conditions. Most riders tend to stick to the UPPER DAM ROUTE or many other hunting routes as they're fit for riding and offer plenty of fun.

Obviously, using hunting routes for recreational ATVing is best done outside of hunting season. Here's a map of designated hunting routes; connect with a local Conservation Office/er to clarify any route questions.

ATV use on non-ATV designated trails is prohibited.
Many angling lakes in the Duck Mountain Park are only accessible by trails.
Unfortunately, anglers are forced to break the law by using ATVs as transport on non-ATV designated trails to access different fishing lakes within Duck Mountain MB Park.

Fortunately, similar to drivers doing 108 km/hr in a posted 100 km/hr zone; attitude, evidence and respect towards the trail, environment, other park users and Conservation Officers can play a factor on whether a fine, warning or blind-eye is issued.
CHILDS LAKE - Mossberry Trail
Duck Mountain Provincial Park, MB

Mossberry Lake Trail - MAP
The MOSSBERRY LAKE TRAIL MAP identifies all the designated recreational ATV trail routes in Duck Mountain, MB Provincial Park. The Mossberry trail and its ATV trail off-shoots are not for beginners; unless they carry a winch or travel in a pack. Many experienced riders tend to get lost around the Childs Lake turnoff (McKelvey trail) at Mossberry Lake. The Childs Lake video clearly shows what happened to a group of ATV riders who accidently found themselves on the non-ATV bicycle path portion of the Mossberry ATV Trail.

BEAR CREEK - Assessippi area
RM Riding Mountain West
Bear Creek Trail - MAP
The Bear Creek Trail is technically a hiking trail located near Asessippi Provincial Park, and supposedly part of the The Great Trail System - but I've never heard of anyone hiking it without being on a quad. Likely because it's too muddy and the trail's not fit for foot traffic. Watch the short little Bear Creek video to see what I mean, then check out the BEAR CREEK TRAIL MAP to find out exactly how to get there.
