Recreational Snowmobile/ATV Trail Conditions – March 21, 2019

  • Snowmobile Trails are currently GOOD
  • ATV Trails are currently GOOD.

You may not believe us but we have a tonne of snow and the trails are in GOOD (maybe even excellent, you tell us) shape. Snow is wet and granular. Lakes are slushy.  Please note that some sections of trail are starting to soften and will present with water/slush, but guests are coming back amazed at how little of this they see out on the trails.  Our trail maintenance staff have already started to mitigate water where necessary but please be advised you may come across these sections.

Until things freeze up again we recommend avoiding lakes.

CLOSED: Powderhorn Trail

To see photos and videos of conditions please visit our Facebook page.

Disclaimer: As always their could be some poor sections with limited base.  Riders should be careful of ice forming, especially on corners, exposed stones and rough sections.  Please adjust your speed according to trail conditions and ride safely at all times.  Single-track trails are open but require extra caution in case of debris/stones.

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

Enjoy your ride but be cautious and don’t take any risks.

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.

** 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).
