On December 8, 2021, the Clinton and District Outdoor Sportsmen Association (CADOSA) requested the Village of Clinton enact a bylaw that would “safely allow off-road vehicles (ORVs) on village streets with the aim of bringing off-road vehicles to the community to access services.”

On December 22, 2021 the Village of Clinton Mayor and Council voted in favor of the request and directed staff to develop a bylaw that will allow ORV access to the community of Clinton from the Gold Rush Snowmobile Trail.


While named the Gold Rush Snowmobile Trail this trail is open to ATVs and SxS’s. The trail will take ORV riders through the regions of 70 Mile House, 100 Mile House, Lac La Hache, Horsefly, Likely and Wells. Campsites and various accommodations enable riders to stay and explore the beautiful forests, lakes and sights.



ATVBC looks forward to assisting CADOSA and the Village of Clinton in increasing ATV access to trails and communities, and supporting ATV Tourism opportunities in and around the Village of Clinton and the Caribou Gold Rush Trail.


ATVBC requested Caribou Gold Rush Trail information on March 11, 2021 and Rec Sites and Trails BC responded:


The Gold Rush Snowmobile Trail is managed as a multi-use, four-season trail, so yes, ATV’s and side-by-sides are welcome on the trail.  There are no specific closures for wildlife or habitat conservation along the trail, and as always we would just encourage users to stay on designated trails.
