Ever considered going for an ATV adventure that takes you right across an entire province?  If so, Newfoundland is the place to do it.   Ride from St. Johns on the Newfoundland T'Railway, a recreational trail that is the former Canadian National railway line, developed by The Newfoundland T'Railway Council, a non-profit corporation, to Port aux Basques.  Their mandate is to promote multi-use trail development and to preserve abandoned railway lines for future use.  The trail can be used by hikers, bikers, snowmobilers, ATVers and cross-country skiers.  The last rain pulled out of Port aux Basques in 1988 drawing a close to the province's transportation history.  The abandoned railway line now attracts outdoor recreational enthusiasts of all ages and interests wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

 MG 5570The rail bed route covers 883 kms of rural, urban and wilderness making a thrilling tour for the enthusiastic ATVer.  Maintaining the rail bed is never ending.  The runoff in spring causes erosion and washouts that require speedy attention.  Heavy snowmobile traffic in the winter produce dips and craters that need attention as well.  Canada's own symbolic beaver helps in the maintenance complications, building dams that create flooding in large areas of land bordering the trail and on the trail itself.  Just riding along the trail posts hazards as conditions can dramatically change, early fall and spring can bring unexpected snow storms and sudden rainstorms can create washouts.
 MG 8575The T'Railway trail is enjoyed by thousands of ATV fanatics from all over North America and many make it a yearly trip.  After the rails were removed and the trails upgraded there still leaves section that are rough and narrow, ideal for an ATV to navigate.  Migrating birds, caribou and other wild life can be viewed along the way.  People you meet on your journey are friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand and it's always handy to find ATV friendly accommodations.
