District 7 trail conditions update

Recommended Posts

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.

I agree. Left first thing and rode from Gravenhurst to Baysville and back. Took in 44 and 3 as part of the journey. 

 

All trails were were freshly groomed after a busy Family Day weekend. Quite an endeavour and really well done. Very much appreciated.

Did the same trip as above, Bracebridge to Sprucedale on the 20th via D and 37 (with a side excursion on 84) trails were very good, but beware of the two Moose turds on 37 :)

Yikes, more road running on the D trail. Hope they can work something out. Thinking i'll use stephenson 2 rd to 37 instead of lone pine.

I wouldn't be holding my breath. I've heard there's a new property owner with plans to build a house.

 

The pipeline heading north from Stephenson Road 1 is now posted with No Trespassing signs.

Maybe they can re open it. I remember when D was closed north of town a few years ago too, not sure if that is still going on?

Yes of course 37 and reconnect with D if you're heading north or south but 37(snobombers/DYW) always opens later than the top D thru HGR territory.

The new build is taking place now,when they started they put up no trespassing signs first day on the D trail head and they stayed for a month or two then they were gone then went back up ,  that section is TCPL so not sure on the politics i look after the section from 37 to smiths gas station for the club , if it gets closed i will still beat down all the soft cat tail sections and do brushing to do my share .i will get the skinny on this

The Pipeline section comes out at Stephenson 2 and looks like the best alternative and i think thats where it used to go. Too bad really,  the bridge that was built in that section not being used now.

It’s official this part of D will be closed ,club has the new signs up sending us up lone pine drive this is going to be a nasty stretch,lots of driveways and houses on this section ,the people living on this section are not going to be liking all the sleds going up and down there at all hrs , so with this loss of this section  and all the trails southeast of baysville plowed down to to dirt for logging .i feel we are getting boxed in ,good thing I sold the 800 adrenaline last year and now a have a 154 inch machine,may do more back country riding with my gang

That’s  Just another kick in the rear for the club , I think a lot of guys may be unloading this season at smiths gulf or maybe at your new spot in port Sydney to get above this new road rash
