SOO Trail condtions?

Recommended Posts

how are the trails and are there some  off trail areas?

I see the map has some trails marked yellow  and will be in the up in Michigan mid week we would like to come ride around the soo even though we have never ridden in that area.

Normally we go with Skidoo boy up to Dubreuilville but he says the condition's there are worse than the soo currently.

so we have Canada Trail permits and looking at staying at the Fairfield inn  possibly .

I see only a small part opened but we would like to ride sat,sun and part of Monday than head home if theres plenty of fun to be had.

 

thanks in advanced and Merry Christmas 

Rob

Soo doesn't look promising either. I am sure mild weather took away some base in past week and washouts north of town need cold and snow to fix, before grooming can begin. I only see town trail open. 

If you want good Canadian conditions I would go to Hearst. You can use your buddy as a stop over on way over. Companion motel is a great spot to stage and stay from. You can go to west way in cochrane stay over night about 300 Km's one way,  stop in at moon beam for a snack and check out their trails. Also go to hornepayne and or ride local Hearst and kap trails. You will get some good miles on no doubt.

You should PM Dan Senior to get the real lowdown on trails in and around the Soo. He lives in the Soo and has a real handle on what is going on there. Others may be commenting from afar with little actual knowledge of local Soo conditions.

Sault Updates: 

 

There's no shortage of snow in Sault Ste. Marie and logging road and back-country riding has been open since late November.  You are good to go in terms of unofficial riding, with 100's of kms of various routes, mostly on crown land.

 

One of the major challenges our region faces is the ruggedness of the terrain, which makes us susceptible to washouts, ruts and boulders on the trails.  Having said that, even though we have a good snow-base which would be plenty for flat-land and farmer's field riding, the boulders and holes on some of these trails need to be covered up.  

 

Many riders have been out already, especially points northward of the city, however, very few are on OntarioConditions to post their updates.

 

You are good to go.  Snowdepth is between 18" - 36" at points north of Sault Ste. Marie.

 

Hope this helps.  Have fun this weekend.  I may be out on Saturday or Sunday, once Christmas company heads home.

Just wondering how the trails from the soo to wawa are after the last warm up. Look to head that way for a 3 day ride this weekend. Any info would be great. Thanks.

Rode from Searchmont to Halfway Haven and back to Searchmont on 1/14/18. Trails had plenty of snow but were hard an somewhat rutted from previous warm up. Some ice bridges had broken through but were passable.
