With summer a distant but fond memory, we thought it was high time to get out for a little autumn ATV adventure. As luck would have it, we had the opportunity to visit one of the most ATV-friendly areas in North America – Ontario. Specifically, we were heading to an area known as Ontario’s Near North, a region absolutely teeming with ATV trails.
Using Toronto as our home base, we loaded up the car and headed to our first destination – North Bay. We began our three-hour journey by pointing the car north on Hwy. 400. It doesn’t take long at all to escape the hustle and bustle of Toronto and the changes in scenery are jarring. Gone are the crowded streets and imposing skyscrapers, replaced by lush farmland, clear lakes, vast forests and the rugged Canadian Shield.
