  1. The MSR clubs did a great job of making the trails perfect even though I thought it was going to be a bust last week . We had to trailer to Emsdale Thursday to ride but it was perfect, and with the Friday snow we were able to go anywhere right from Port Sydney. Thankyou club volunteers and also the landowners for making this years sled trip another success. Hopefully one more trip to North Bay southshore in March with the grandkids.

    Emsdale Parking

    Awesome thanks for the info. Conditions looked better starting after Highway 60. My son says they keep getting better all the way into Restoule area. Port Sydney area needs snow badly.
  4. Looking to trailer into Emsdale area for riding. According to the trail map parking is available at the old township office. However the interactive guide shows it at the Fern Glen cloverleaf. Please advise what is correct. Thanks

    District 7 report

    Just got back from Ox tongue lake. My wife and I stayed for a week. The trails were perfect as far south as kenisis lake to as far north as Sand lake (Kearney). They started perfect last Sunday and were great right until I put the sled on the truck for our trip home Friday evening. Accommodations were perfect at Lakewoods cottages in Oxtongue. Service was excellent at the restaurant in Dorset (3 times). and at Edgewater park last weekend. One of the better trips we have had since beginning weekly trips since 1979. Thanks to the Algonquin club for a great job on the trails****
  7. Just got home from a week in this area . Trails were awesome both clubs did a great job especially with the Restoule club having to share a groomer with the Nippissing club due to the fact there's is broken. I can't believe how much snow they have got compared to just 2 hours south. Thanks to the landowners who share there property with us the grooming people and the merchants who are always helpful. 38 years we have been riding and things are great still
  8. We rode the forest last weekend and it was great. Considering the weather I would go back in a minute. Silver Maple hotel was great as well. Good place to stay.

    Dorset Cottage Accomodations

    Hello My name is Ron Ytsma looking to rent a cottage in your area for the week of Jan. 31 - Feb 7. Just myself and my wife , possible one other couple. We are non smokers 56 years old have been sledding since 1979. Is your place available Thanks Ron
  12. Haliburton Forest Info Fred is mostly correct. Cost is $50.00 per day tax in & $10.00 if you have a passenger. I rode it 2 weeks ago and it was very good. I like to ride there once a season, usually my first ride. Unless you go way north it is the first to open and the last to close. We like to stay at Windemere cottages. You can ride right into the forest right from your cottage. Cottages are very close to the forest parking lot. It's size is good for about 2 days of riding and real good for beginner snowmobilers or small kids because the warm up shelters are great for a weather break and there are outhouses at the shelters.

    Trip advice for Thursday February 23

    We had an awsome weekend riding the Tall Pines /Algonquin trails last weekend. The best ride was the Troutspawn/ Livingstone lake loops. They were not busy , but flat .All lakes were staked and a short trip in Dorset for fuel and food. or head over to Ox Narrows
