|Unlike many vacation spots, we make winter a time for celebration. New fallen snow gives the area a freshness and peace that the city will never know. All through the district, you'll find well groomed trails for cross-country skiing (available at a few of our resorts as well), snowmobiling and hiking. Remember down hill skiing within an hours drive.
Sledding in the Heart of the Kawarthas
In a word great! That's what we keep hearing from fellow snowmobilers. The Buckhorn District Snowmobile Club has one of the finest trail systems you will ever ride. Snowmobile season usually starts in early December and lasts until mid March. The club has a dedicated group of volunteers that keep the trails clear and well-groomed.
This area is blessed with breathtaking scenery that comes alive in the winter. On a pleasant afternoons ride you can really appreciate the beauty of nature, whether it's snowladen evergreens, or a moose off in a clearing.
||With over 200 Kms of groomed trails to ride or ski, easy access to all O.F.S.C. trails, and club events to take part in, winter is a season you will truly enjoy. Parking is available at four lots located throughout the system and rides can be easily planned with our comprehensive trail map. The clubhouse is located 1 km east of Buckhorn on Hwy. 36. Remember, when you buy your O.F.S.C. trail permit from one of the club's sponsors you become a member of the Buckhorn District Snowmobile Club and membership is now over the 1,000 mark.
