Any trails maintained by the MRCA are off limits to ATVers. The Mattagami Region Conservation Authority is sending out the message to anyone who uses a motorized vehicle to stay off their trails. They maintain over 50-kilometres of trails in Timmins, including the popular Hersey Lake and the Scout Rock Trail. Anyone caught with an ATV on one of those trails could be looking at charges under the Trespassing and Conservation Authority Acts.

The MRCA is asking anyone who sees an ATV on one of their trails to report them to the Timmins Police or the MRCA with a license plate number. Other trails maintained by the MRCA are the Golden Springs Trail, the Bridge to Bridge Trail, and the Bart Thomson Trail.
