NEWS & UPDATES
PRINCETON ATV CLUB
The Princeton ATV Club is more than just ATV riding. The club is associated with and strong supporter of ATV/BC, our provincial organization.
We are a local club devoted to "shared trails" for everyone. It is our belief that the trails can be managed effectively for however you choose to enjoy our back country.
Through informed education and policing procedures we strongly believe everyone will benefit from our efforts.
Our recreational sport is fast becoming a part of family life and is growing at astronimical proportions annually.
Princeton ATV Club is active in preserving the environment and wildlife habitat, sharing the wilderness with other users, in protecting our rights and privileges to access our wilderness in a responsible and safe manner.
Shared trails is an economic opportunity for our community and surrounding area. The tourism dollars associated with our sport cannot be ignored and should be explored to their full potential.
Princeton ATV Club will work in conjunction with the Princeton Chamber of Commerce and any other group willing to accept our ideas of shared trails.
As an organized group, we will lobby governments to preserve our rights to trails throughout BC.
The members of Princeton ATV Club pledge to promote and protect our trails for everyone to enjoy.
Princeton ATV Club urges you to join a local club and ATV / BC to become a part of this provinces fastest growing recreational sport.

Monday November 18, 2019, Princeton Town Council voted to accept a one year conditional trial for mixed use on the KVR within town boundaries.
The conditions include an east route to Twin River Park, and a west route to just before Subway. This will allow registered and insured ORV users walk in access from staging areas for food and fuel. There will remain a closed portion of the trail from twin rivers park to subway, due to liability issues of the underpass.
The new rules will not be effective until local ATV groups and the Town of Princeton have addressed all safety measures and signage. Please do not use the trail until all conditions have been met and a formal announcement that the trail is ready to be used.
Although this decision is not exactly what local clubs have been lobbying for, it is a positive step forward.
The decision to open the trail from Subway to Coalmont/Tulameen and from Twin Rivers Park to Summerland is an economic win for our business community, a positive step forward for tourism and an opportunity for ORV enthusiasts to access amenities.
Today, after over three years we can all be proud of what we have accomplished and have proven that diplomatic perseverance prevails.
The Princeton ATV Club board of directors would like to thank Town Council, administration, our many club members, local businesses, ATVBC, Similkameen Valley Riders ATV Club, Valley Riders ATV Club, Vermilion Trails Society and all those who supported our efforts.
We will continue to lobby provincial government to complete the route from Summerland to Brookmere.
Please ride responsibly and respect this privilege, this has been a very long time coming, thank you everyone.
