Ontario's must-ride snowmobile loops
For many, it's not just the snowmobiling itself that does wonders—there's something truly unique about spending quality time with friends and family in the great outdoors, surrounded by fresh powder, beautiful forests and ribbon-like trails.
Depending on your level of comfort and experience, putting together a viable snowmobile route can be a challenge. Just knowing that the basics can be relied on along the way can provide a much-needed sense of peace of mind that will allow you to truly enjoy your travel experience.
The tour loops listed below have been put together by snowmobilers and volunteers with a view to maintaining selected trails at the highest possible level of quality and consistency.
Well marked, impeccably groomed, and with direct access to enough fuel, food and lodgings to enable snowmobilers to find them easily, these loops could well be the setting for your next great winter memory.
What to know before you go
Before you head out, please check to make sure that the trails are available using the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Club's Interactive Trail Guide.
The OFSC is a not-for-profit federation made up of local member snowmobile clubs across the province that provide a wide range of excellent programs, which help ensure responsible riding experiences that are both fun and safe for snowmobilers.
