Ontario’s Premiere Snowmobile Trails

Experience One of the Top 10 Snowmobiling Destinations in North America

Known as “Ontario’s snowmobiling wonderland” and offering over 400 km of well developed and carefully maintained snowmobile and winter ATV trails, Haliburton Forest is considered to be one of the Top 10 snowmobiling destinations in North America.

Haliburton Forest’s location at the top of the Algonquin Dome boasts unmatched winter ATVing conditions, while the rest of eastern North America suffers from repeat winters of poor snowfall.

Despite this growth in popularity and use, we’re committed to maintaining your winter getaway experience without sacrificing the quality of our snowmobile trails. Snowmobile freely: By limiting the number of passes, and having an extensive network of trails, riders never experience a back-to-back line up.

Gasoline, oil, snowmobile rentals, accommodations, and food are available at Base Camp (with free parking) near Kennisis Lake.

Valid ownership and insurance per snowmobile/ATV (no side by sides please) must be presented to staff in the Main Office upon check in.
