From the wild peaks of BC’s Coast Mountains to the Rocky Mountain foothills, the wide-open plains and sprawling forests of the prairies, the ancient Canadian Shield of Ontario, the hills and bogs of New Brunswick and the rolling farmland of PEI, there is no better way to cover as much ground or head as deep into Canada’s backcountry as atop an ATV. Giving you unmatched access into the country’s most difficult terrain, along with some undeniable thrills, ATVing provides an outdoor adventure experience like no other.

Here at Backroad Mapbooks, we know just how much fun cruising along a trail or a backroad on an off-highway vehicle can be, which is why we go out of our way to include as many off-highway vehicle trails and riding areas on our maps as possible, as well as a specific ATV or OHV Adventure section to inform you of all the best quadding areas in Canada.

Here are a few of the features that make Backroad Mapbooks your go-to guide to ATVing in Canada from coast to coast.
Leading Trail Coverage
Our award winning maps show you tens of thousands of kilometers of motorized trails across the country, with trails clearly charted across all provinces plus the Yukon Territory. Many of the trails are supplemented with detailed written descriptions and are found across all of our map products, including GPS Maps, Waterproof Rec Maps, TOPO Maps and our Backroad Navigator app. We also show you more resource roads, logging roads, deactivated roads, multi-use trail systems and cutlines than any other map source, making your options for OHV use across Canada virtually limitless. Whether you are exploring a provincial forest in Manitoba or ripping along an abandoned logging road in BC’s interior, we’ve got you covered.

Unparalleled Map Detail
Our maps feature industry-leading topographic relief and shading, so you can clearly see upcoming elevation gains and losses while exploring a trail. Mountain peaks are labelled and include elevation, and we chart creeks, lakes, rivers and streams so you do not run into any unexpected water crossings while ATVing. Other natural features such as wetlands are clearly marked, so you can stay out of ecologically sensitive terrain. We also show you parks, conservation areas and wildlife refuges, and many of our provinces also include Crown and private land data, allowing you to easily avoid riding where quads are not welcome.

In addition to ATV staging areas, our maps show you a host of man-made and natural features that you may encounter while riding your off-highway vehicle, including campsites and day-use rec areas, multi-use trails, scenic viewpoints, waterfalls, backcountry huts, airstrips, microwave towers, hot springs, dams, beaches more. We also show you transmission lines, pipelines and seismic lines. With these maps in hand, you know exactly what to expect from the area you are ATVing in.
Many of the trails and riding areas we have featured on our maps are supplemented with detailed written descriptions created by our team of outdoor writers and researchers. These descriptions include distance, elevation gain, access and staging areas, restrictions, trail highlights and more. No other recreation map provides you with this much information on quadding across Canada.
In addition to our classic Backroad Mapbooks, we offer a variety of map products that cater specifically to ATVers. Our Waterproof Rec Maps feature all the detail of our Backroad Mapbooks blown up to a larger scale. Printed on durable, weather-resistant material, these maps are perfect for ATVers who are trying to carry as little weight as possible.
We also offer over 1,500 TOPO Maps. Beginning at 1:50,000 scale, these maps are perfect for trip planning. The large format and high level of detail gives you the clearest picture of your off-highway vehicle area possible.
Our GPS Maps contain all of our detailed maps and written descriptions, plus added features such as trip tracking, so you can retrace your OHV route at a later date and check statistics such as distance travelled and elevation gain.
We also offer our Backroad Navigator app for Apple and Android mobile devices, which functions much like the GPS Maps with detailed maps, written descriptions and trip tracking. The app also has additional features such as geotagged photos, so you can snap a shot of that hidden staging area, fork in the trail or scenic viewpoint for future reference.
All of these features and more make Backroad Mapbooks your number one navigational tool for ATVing across Canada. You can check out our full range of products on our website or use our store locator to find a Backroad Mapbooks retailer near you.
