Recreational Snowmobile/ATV Trail Conditions – December 15, 2018

The main double track trails and most secondary trails are very rideable and being groomed regularly. For the most part trails have at least 10 cms of snow, some areas more, some areas less. The base is still forming in some areas, so riders should be careful of ice forming on corners and exposed stones. Lakes are not yet safe for riding. Single-track trails may be passable but not yet groomed, and require extra caution in case of debris/stones until we get more snow.

As always, be wary of sharp corners and trees.
Enjoy your ride but be cautious and don’t take any risks.

Areas of Concern or to Avoid:

  • Red Trail at Dog Lake has been repaired from a major wash out but we will need more snow before it can be groomed.
  • **North Road By-Pass at Wolf Lake will see some logging traffic for the next few days.
  • ABSOLUTELY NO LAKE crossings
  • We strongly recommend avoiding any single track trails.

As always caution is to be used at all times. Watch for hazards such as washouts, flooding, trees and debris on the trails.

Rates:  $49.00 per driver for daily trail passes and $99.00 per person, per night (as long as minimums are met per unit) for overnight accommodations plus HST.

Reminder: Permits are required before entering Haliburton Forest property. In the winter months Haliburton Forest limits the number of daily riders on its trail system to 100. Therefore, daily visitors, especially on weekends, are required to reserve a space on the trails prior to arrival. This will ensure that visiting snowmobilers and atvers will be provided with the best possible and consistently superior snowmobiling conditions.
