Recreational Snowmobile/ATV Trail Conditions – April 15, 2019 – CLOSED
Trails at Haliburton Forest are officially CLOSED for the season as of this morning (Monday April 15, 2019).
After one of the best snowmobiling and dogsledding seasons in recent memory, we must admit that we can’t control the weather, so we’re going to let spring run its course. A huge “thank you” to everyone who came out to ride the trails this winter.
It was a blast and we are already looking forward to next year!
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.
* At time of purchase valid ownership and insurance will be required per snowmobile being booked as well as on the trails. Upon arrival passes MUST be picked up at the Main Office. Driver’s must have a valid driver’s license or the equivalent Motorized Snow Vehicle Operator’s License.
** Passes must be within the same household. Valid for up to 2 adults with their children 21 years of age and under.
***Side by sides are not permitted on the trails. No after market pipes, cans, etc… (nothing that makes your sled(s) louder).
****If riding double, adults must have a legal two up. Children are permitted to ride double with an adult. All riders are REQUIRED to wear helmets.
