ATVing? the Only Four-Season Power Sport

For lovers of the outdoors, there's everything from snowmobiling to snow shoeing to cross-country skiing in the winter? and with the winter thaw? hiking, biking, and canoeing. Of course, then there's ATVing, the only true four-season power sport.

For lovers of the outdoors, there's everything from snowmobiling to snow shoeing to cross-country skiing in the winter? and with the winter thaw? hiking, biking, and canoeing. Of course, then there's ATVing, the only true four-season power sport.

Clearly one of the most unique aspects of ATVing is that it is a year-round experience that constantly evolves in tandem with nature and the change in season. As a result, the Ontario ATV experience is always an option that awaits travelers yearning to get back on the trails. Perhaps that's what Pete Seeger was really alluding to when he wrote the immortal lines: There is a Season? Turn, Turn, Turn!

Just consider ATV Ontario's seasonal options:

In Spring trickles of water and maple sap mark the advent of this glorious time of year and everywhere there is mud, water and more mud. It's a time when cabin-fever gives way to an urge to get out of the house and head for the wilds of Ontario? a time when the smells in the air of wild leeks and other vegetation spike the air? a time when wildflowers and most notably trilliums, the province's official flower, seem to spring up? everywhere.

Of course no one knows this more than the organizers of Spring Jam, the country's largest ATV jamboree which last year attracted over 400 riders. This year Spring Jam is an expanded, four-day event from April 22-25 and is hosted by the Georgian Bay Experience out of Parry Sound.

A month later and still technically in spring, the Mattawa ATV experience is revving up for its own unique rally on May 15.

By the time Summer arrives, layers of clothing and cumbersome boots have given away to the freedom of riding where only a t-shirt separates you from the onrush of warm, earthy air. Riding in the summer conjures up images of freedom and adventure evoked by Easy Rider - only better, because instead of asphalt highways, you'll find yourself riding along trails bordered by grass, trees and blue sky. Summer is a season where you will feel compelled to slow time down and stop every once in a while to catch a glimpse of the ducks, loons and an infinite variety of other birds flying overhead. Summer also marks the start of the Cochrane Experience's much-anticipated Rails, Trails and Rivers program.

Fall is synonymous with rich colours and clear days. It's a time that evokes a sense of mystery and wonder as we witness the departure of migrating birds against the backdrop of majestic trees and falling leaves. Adrenaline flows freely as you ride into the cool fresh air. Bumps, hills, rocky creeks and crevasses lie ahead on trails, which are suddenly more accessible. And the bugs, some of which you will not miss, have departed.

Then there is Winter, a time when most other spring, summer and fall outdoor pursuits come to a grinding halt. But not ATVing. In many respects you can go further and experience more during winter. Frozen lakes provide you with a new perspective on the wilderness as you drive along the shorelines and have an opportunity to look deep into wooded areas now bereft of their foliage. The air is crisp and silent and the trails are now covered with a deep layer of snow and ice? providing riders with an entirely new experience to be savoured.
