All Terrain Vehicles (ATV or quads)

ATV enthusiasts can look forward to beautiful scenery and challenging terrain on a network of seismic lines, old roads, and designated ATV trails. Popular areas near Hinton include trails in the Cache Percotte Forest and the non-vegetated sand dunes on the south side of Brule Lake. ATV access to this area surrounding Cadomin has changed with the recent development of the Cheviot coal mine. ATV use is not allowed on multi-purpose trails, in Provincial Recreation Areas, in protected areas, in the Prime Protection Zone bordering Jasper National Park, and it is restricted to certain periods and/or designated ATV corridors in some sensitive areas (called Forest Land Use Zones). Contact the Lands and Forest Service for information about motorized vehicle restrictions and designated access corridors. Contacts: Land and Forest Service, 865-8267.

The Foothills Recreation Management Association manages and maintains two campgrounds that cater to ATV riders. These are the Gregg River Recreation Area and the Petite Lake Campground - at both of these sites, ATVs can be driven in and out of the campground. Machines should not be run between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.
