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.

(Barrie, ON: February 25 , 2021) – As the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) enters its 54th year as the voice for the volunteer snowmobile clubs in this province, it’s informative to look at a few of our “Snowmobiling By The Numbers”. Hopefully, they help all of us better appreciate the big picture of organized snowmobiling in Ontario – and what a massive, complex and valuable undertaking this year-round enterprise really is. It’s also a sobering look at the economic benefits that are being lost to snowbelt communities as too many trails are closed due to snowmobilers wandering off marked trails.

Fire Route 82 Safety Concern

We received a call this afternoon from the the President of the road association for Fire Route 82 in Trent Lakes, north of Buckhorn. Area residents are very concerned for their safety and that of snowmobilers using this route to access the snowmobile trail or Big Bald Lake. There has been a large number of sleds using this route, many travelling at high speed, with little regard for the safety of themselves or others. Property owners are also concerned about damage to the road itself caused by snowmobile traffic. This is a private road, used and maintained by full time residents and property owners along the road. Fire Route 82 is not a recognized snowmobile trail.
