Algonquin Park - New Trails


Recommended Posts

Just saw the joint press release between the park and the OFSC.  Very exciting!!!!


Algonquin Park and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs are pleased to announce a new partnership to open up 500 km of Park roads for snowmobiling for the winter of 2024.  The new trails will cross the park in both a north south and east west direction with key access points near South River, Whitney, Rolphton and Mattawa.  Grooming operations will be completed by the local Snowmobile clubs that border the park with summer road maintenance continuing to be completed by the park.  Only snowmobiles that are 10 years old or newer will be allowed on the new park trails to respect the sensitive environment.  All trail will be on existing roads, so no new trail construction will be needed.  OFSC president was quoted saying "We are pleased to move forward with this new venture working in collaboration with Algonquin Park and the province of Ontario.  It will lead to increased economic activity in the communities that border the park while respecting the sensitive environment of Algonquin Park that all trail users enjoy visiting.  The new trail routes will add options to the already popular Round Algonquin Park (RAP) tour".  Trail maps outling the new routes will be released later this spring and a marketing campaign will begin next fall to promote the new trails.

Wish was true. Would be nice to hear of new trails opening and not closing.

Here in Heart of Ontario Club we are working on getting a new trail open to the Camden club east of Orillia. We lost a key bridge to the north when Parks Canada closed the bridge, had it demolished and now they can't find a new contactor to rebuild the bridge.
