This is the trail to Canadian Tire, McDonalds, Harveys, Walmart, Shell gas area? Any idea, in terms of proximity to businesses, where it exits?

It currently will end in the Canadian tire parking lot but we expect to work on a couple of branches into the center of the south end and on up to the Microtel and Comfort inn.

Excellent news!!! I am sure there are a number of volunteers who have worked tirelessly on this behind the scenes.

For your sake I hope RIOCAN isn't the owner of any of the property that you're going to travel to get to the businesses. Their policy is no snowmobiles or ATV's on their property.

Bill,if you have these trails ready for this season,I will have to investigate them.It has been far too long since I rode through
that area.Need to check with the accomodations to see if a 2 or 1 night stay is preferable and adjust my interferences accordingly.

Absolutely no knock to the trail work and organization done at the south end of town accessing businesses, but keep in mind the north end as well. There is an access trail off the town trail to the back of the Parry Sound Mall - which has faded in years, but is a lot less busy than the business area in the south. There is parking for vehicle and trailer if you are launching for a day trip.

The Parry Sound Mall has washrooms, Subway, Fish and Chip place, Tim Horton's 100 yards away, gas at Canadian Tire gas bar, a food store, Staples (batteries, cords) and a large discount type store. Next to the mall is a mom and pop motel and a restaurant. (can't remember name at this time but they are map sponsors) There is far less traffic and road crossing for sleds than that in the area of southern businesses in Parry Sound.

Just mentioning, as if it were me doing the town trail and needed a stop, I'd continue to the north end as access is easier.

I remember a by-pass trail at the north end that had heavy duty "warning" signs about bottoming out, etc.

Took my girlfriend on it, and we snapped the the rear suspension.

Funny thing is, girlfriend became my wife.

Must've been me :)
