    We are pleased to announce ATVANS has selected a new Trails Coordinator effective immediately. John Rathwell from Sable River, Shelburne County, has accepted our offer and will begin immediately.

    John is a trained Geomatics Technician educated at Fleming Collage in Lindsay, Ontario; his training and experience will assist us as we continue to improve and complete our mapping projects. John has a background in outdoor power sports and trail mapping. He is passionate about traveling and mapping our trail network. John is relatively new to Nova Scotia but has already experienced much of the local trails near his home community.

    “I am excited for this opportunity with ATVANS and hope to be meeting the clubs and their members soon. I am eager to hear their concerns and look forward to working with the local clubs to find solutions that work for everyone. My goal is to build on the successes of trail leaders like my predecessor Corey Robar and others,” said John.

    John’s contact information is available under the Contact section of this website.

    On behalf of the board and membership of ATVANS, I want to publicly thank Corey Robar our trail coordinator for his 15 years of service to ATVANS. Corey will be moving on to new challenges with the Province of Nova Scotia starting Monday. Corey was not only a great employee but also a great friend.

    We look forward to working with you in your new capacity and expect good things in the future.

    It is very important to preserve our history and also to protect it. It is also important to have groups, such as ACAMUTS, who understand and appreciate our heritage, to protect it and make it more accessible to the general public.

    On Sunday, November 7, 2021, several members of the Society ventured to Roxbury and did a fantastic undertaking of a general cleanup of the settlement … including the two cemeteries and erecting teepees around a number of wells.

    The area, now referred to as Roxbury, was once occupied by Mi’kmaq, French Acadian and finally by English Loyalists at the turn of the 1800s. The last inhabitants, homesteaders in the 1920s, only stayed for a few years. Since then the area has attracted hunters, fishermen, campers and the curious. From the 1970s onward Roxbury, originally called Durland’s Settlement, has become a hikers challenge, ATV trip, skidoo outing or a truck/car trek. But overall it remains a place of lure and mystery. One always asks who settled there and why!

    Thanks again to ACAMUTS and its members for keeping the doors of history open.

    Friends of Roxbury

    Work has officially begun on #264 aka "Kate Tucker Trail"

    If possible, please avoid travel on this trail until it firms up. Keep an eye on the Sunrise Trails ATV Club Facebook page for updates.

    If your craving for a Nelly's Burger cannot be denied, please use this trail respectfully to avoid reversing the work already completed.

    Work being done includes 4 culverts and many km's of ditching and surface hardening.

    This trail connects the 260 (Railbed) to 2 of our trailside dining options, The Sandpiper and Nelly's Grill.

    We have received notice from the Municipality of Chester that the Gold River Bridge will be closed immediately due to structural issues identified by the engineers.

    The bridge will be closed to ALL users for an indefinite period of time until repairs/replacement can be completed.

    More details to follow as things are assessed, and a plan is compiled as to what will happen moving forward. The Municipality realizes this is an important part in connectivity and is working towards a solution.
