Winter in Buckhorn

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 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 day's ride you can really appreciate the beauty of nature, whether it's snowladen evergreens, or a moose off in a clearing.

With over 160 Kms of groomed trails to ride, 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.

Buy where you ride! Please indicate the Buckhorn District Snowmobile Club on your permit application and become a member of a great club with over 500 members!
