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.

Due to the pandemic Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the constantly changing updates and directives from all levels of government, the OFSC is taking proactive measures to support efforts to reduce the spread of this worldwide pandemic.

These are unprecedented times and like many other responsible businesses we are taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety of you, your families, our communities and businesses across the province.

Yesterday, the OFSC Board of Governors made a formal decision to cease trail operations and grooming effective immediately on any trails which are still available to the public. Effective midnight, Saturday, March 21st all OFSC Prescribed Snowmobile Trails in Ontario will be closed and anyone accessing such trails from that date forward will be trespassing. This advance notification will provide all remaining touring snowmobilers ample time to get home.

We’d like to thank all our loyal permit buyers, landowners, club volunteers and partners for their support this season and encourage everyone to do their part and stay healthy and safe as we all work together in overcoming this pandemic. We want to stress that this decision is not based on an economic basis. Although grooming operations are reduced at this time of the season, we still spend substantial monies on our open trails. We want to ensure permit buyers that any savings from funds not spent this permit year will be invested in the next season.

We encourage you to stay up to date on the latest COVID-19 information from our government here:
