An Important Connection:
As of June 1st, 2019, recreational “All-Terrain” vehicles have been allowed within city limits of Corner Brook along a designated route.
This pilot project was implemented with consultations from the ATV-ing community and the general public. The goal was to connect the East and West ends of Corner Brook, allowing ATV operators access to trails as well as amenities such as accommodations and stores while journeying around the province.
In 2021 the City of Corner Brook conducted a thorough consultation process in order to further develop the program with the needs of residents and visitors in mind. For more information about the Survey, the results and how they have informed recommended amendments, please see here: ATV Survey Results 2021.

The route primarily follows the waterfront with the exception of a venture through Main Street and Broadway for basic amenities. Park St., West St. and Confederation Dr. have been added as of 2020. Lundrigan Dr. was approved for use in 2021.
