the Buckhorn District Snowmobile Club

The Buckhorn District Snowmobile Club is based in Buckhorn, Ontario, about 25 minutes north of the City of Peterborough. We are a member club of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs, and are one of seven clubs making up OFSC District 2.

BDSC volunteers and grooming staff maintain approximately 165 kilometres of trails through varying terrain, from the east shore of Chemong Lake in the south, to the Gooderham area in the north.

The bulk of our trails are in the Municpality of Trent Lakes, in an area of beautiful Canadian Shield forest once known as The Five Points Trail System – a throwback to the earliest days of organized snowmobiling.

To the west, our trails join those of the Twin Mountains Snowmobile Club in the Bobcaygeon area. On the east side of our system our trails connect with those of the Paudash Trail Blazers and the Stoney Lake Snoriders, leading to the Wilberforce and Apsley areas.

E108 Paddy's Lake Bridge

If anyone wants to help us out with the bridge redecking, please reach out. An ATV is appreciated but not mandatory. We can arrange a ride to the site which is approx 8kms in from the road. Many hands make light work.

How do I apply

Ok guys & gals ... who's planning to attend the Toronto International Snowmobile ATV & Powersports show in October? ... See MoreSee Less

Prepping over 30,000 km of snowmobile trails for the coming winter is an enormous task, and every club could use some extra help. Much of their effort occurs outdoors, including installing 10s of thousands of signs & stakes; clearing, brushing and grading; repairing bridges and culverts; and carving out necessary re-routes and detours. Snowmobilers offering to lend a hand for even a few hours can make a big difference.

But inside, there’s also work that needs doing, from scheduling trail work and supplies to keeping track of the finances, to club communications.

Students looking to fulfill community service commitments might want to consider volunteering for their local snowmobile club.

How else can you help? Donations of materials like lumber, gates, fencing, nails, etc can save your club money rather than having to buy these items. Same goes for prizes or gift cards that can be used for club fundraising activities. And if you own or have access to any equipment like excavators, backhoes, graders, dozers, trucks or ATVs, donating their use for trail work would be greatly appreciated.

Find Your District at www.ofsc.on.ca/find-your-district/ and go to their website to get contact information for your club of choice. Then give them a call and ask how you can help!
