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.

We've posted some of the trail as Limited(yellow)! Check the ITG for trail status. Better late than never.
Lakes are NOT staked and will not be this year. Use at your own risk!
Thank you to groomer operator Stef for his determination to get this trail open this year! He has been grooming it with BDSC's Yamaha VK540 and drag. Kudos!!πŸ‘πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺ

Groomer operators Wib and Gary borrowed our BR180 from TMSC late last week to make an attempt up the trail. It was a 14 hour adventure! They groomed the 460, E108, 490, 495 on the way up and then dropped the drag at the 495/509 intersection. They then took just the BR180 all the way up to Gooderham and only broke through one water hole. All good! However on the return trip, they were not able to make it up Greens Mountain. After numerous attempts they had to run the roads to get around it. Once they got back to the 495, they hooked up the drag and returned the BR180 to TMSC. Unfortunately, we will not be opening the 509.
Thank you guys for the attempt!!! It was a long day!! Kudos!!πŸ‘

Wib returned the borrowed New Holland 6030 back to the Paudash Clubouse on the weekend, grooming the trails all the way.

Big shout out to our groomer operators Wib, Al, Gary and Stef! They have done a great job under trying circumstances this year! They have been out as much as possible recently, weather and temperature permitting, and most of our open trails are in nice shape!
Thank you guys!! πŸ‘πŸ‘Š

Get out there and ride while you can!!

Some positive and exciting news for the Buckhorn District Snowmobile Club!!!!!

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of a NEW groomer! The BDSC took delivery yesterday, of a 2022 New Holland T6 160 and Sur-Trac drag. The first new unit for the BDSC in about fifteen years. What a great way to finish out what has been a very challenging season for us and to renew enthusiasm for the seasons to come!!

Groomer operator Wib, took the T6 out on it's first grooming shift last night. Still a few more to come we hope!

We would like to express our sincere thanks to the OFSC Fleet Management team and to OFSC District 2 for the allocation of the T6 to the BDSC.

Unfortunately, we have had to post E108 as "Unavailable for Riding" between BDSC 509 and the Paudash Junction.

Due to the logging operations happening in the area, the trail has been plowed down to dirt. Our groomer operators had been able to pull some snow from the sides over the past week to make a bit of a "snirt" path, but it has now reached the point where there is nothing to move onto the trail and with the warm temperatures, it is has become impassible for sleds over a distance of approximately 5 kms. Most unfortunate as the rest of the trails have held up quite well.

As always, before you ride, check the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide or the Go Snowmobiling Ontario app, to ensure you are only riding trails posted as Limited (Yellow) or Available (Green).

Thanks for trying so hard. It's a struggle in these warmer temperatures

I ran into that yesterday and turned around. At least 2 guys I saw kept going. Your other trails were great. Thank you! And Twin Mountains Snowmobile Club - Bobcaygeon, Ontario

Turned around today when we saw it, didn't know it was 5kms. All the other trails by BDSC were outstanding!

Rode it yesterday and it was nasty. I wish the ITG would show issues such as logging. I would have adjusted my ride to avoid the area. Almost run over by skidder since he didn't see us.

Can the 506 be used to bypass this area ? Partial bypass ?
