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.

Did you know that every year the stakeholders for the 5 points trail system get together to plan out new trails and maintenance projects for existing trails? Remember that the next time you hear someone say that ATVs, dirt bikes, snowmobiles and jeeps don't get along.
In 2011 a big blow down brought members of KATVA, OF4WD, HATVA and TMSC together to clear the trees from the trails. After the trails were opened again, Brian Sibbles of the OF4WD and Carolyn Richards of KATVA realized how much more can be accomplished by working together so they brought the groups together to form the 5 Points User Group Committee.
Since the first meeting, representatives of the COORJC, OFTR, and BDSC have also been added to the group. This is the only example in Ontario of ALL 4 motorized disciplines working together in partnership for one trail system. The 5 points is made up of private land and crown land, so we face many different types of challenges managing this trail system, and these groups working together is what makes it one of the best trail systems in Ontario.
One of the goals of these meetings is to identify trail work that needs to be done. Each project is identified and a plan is put in place that includes which group will take the lead on the project, but every group is involved in some manner.
