Aubrey Falls / Black Creek Outfitters - 2020-2021 - Season

Recommended Posts

The Aubrey Falls / Black Creek Outfitters area on highway 129, is another early season riding opportunity.  A beautifully secluded, hidden gem in south Algoma that typically is ridable on about the 7th of December, due to adequate snow. 

 

This is one of a few regions in the Sault Ste. Marie area to receive early snow, unfortunately, it is also one of the last in District 13 to get groomed.   I have been a strong proponent of hoping a Groomer could be stationed at Black Creek Outfitters, then groom in 3 directions, allowing for early season riding.  South-East along the Kindiogami on the Elliot Lake F to highway 546, South-West on the D106 to Conacher Lake and North-West along the D201F.

 

We need to support small businesses like Black Creek Outfitters and keep alive the uniqueness it brings to District 13.   Its unfortunate this area is not a higher priority on the grooming list.

 

Chad and I do our part every December removing downed trees from the trails and bring some business by making at least 2 visits in the month.  Attached are photos of Chad, Don and I working on the Black Creek road on December 8th, 2019.

 

This area will be one of our destinations this upcoming December for some early season riding.

Hi Dan,

Be sure to say hi from Paige and I when you see Jean and Don.

Love the pictures.

We still talk about the day you showed us the way from Elliot Lake to Black Creek without using any OFSC trails.

Never knew there were trapper trails connecting so many lakes like canoe portages. 

Scott

Some early season riding in the Aubrey Falls / Black Creek area last year.  One photo taken on the Black Creek Road, the other photo, I am scoping out a cross country route via the powerline.

Here's a bit of history on the Elliot Lake F Trail.  When several uranium mines closed in Elliot Lake in 1990, a few thousand men were out of work.  Part of the government funding initiative was to re-train / re-employ mine workers.  One of the sponsored projects deployed was the development of a trail link between Dunlop Lake Lodge and the Kindiogami Road.  One of my friends laid off from the mines helped clear cut that trail.  Obviously some ups and downs and tight corners, but it has improved over time.  Hats off to everyone whoever worked on that trail and continues to do so.   There may be more history, but that is all I know.  I started riding it in the mid 1990's
