To All HDSC Members,

The recent announcement by North Bay-Parry Sound Public Health to close all snowmobile trails within their Health Unit is unfortunate for those clubs and riders but let it be a warning to all snowmobilers. That Health Unit observed too many people traveling in/out to/from other Health Units in contradiction of the current Provincial Shutdown. Under the lockdown, people must stay within their own Health Units and avoid non-essential travel.

HDSC continues to prepare and groom our trails, with a couple segments now with LIMITED availability. We already have more hours of grooming in 2021 than either of the previous 2 seasons to date. With more snow, we will be able to open more segments but please respect the Interactive Trail Guide (ITG). In accordance with the Provincial Lockdown, we will not be opening Connector Trails leading to neighbouring Health Units until the Lockdown is lifted, scheduled for Feb 11. Do not use these trails marked CLOSED as it could lead to total closure of our region too. It's not just riders traveling IN to our area but also our residents riding OUT of our area that may lead to total lockdown.

We are grooming all trails in anticipation of the Lockdown lifting on Feb 11. Please be patient, follow the Interactive Trail Guide (ITG), and help us keep our current riding privileges available throughout this 2021 season.

Thank you,
Havelock & District Snowmobile Club

Not trying to stir up 💩, but there is no ‘must’ stay in local region, it is only a recommendation - one cannot be charged for being out of their region.

Its was quoted that the health unit recieved multple complaints. Not observed.

Members who like to ride in Halliburton, see information below.Update

Snowmobile trails are open for seasons pass holders and day passes that have already been purchased. Check-in will be via curbside pickup at the Main Office.

Accommodations will be closed effective immediately, up to and including Wednesday, February 10.

Trail maintenance and patrolling continue as usual. Gasoline and propane will continue being available.

Shelter cabins are still open, but they are only to be used in emergencies - not for socializing.

We are permitted to be open in this manner under the provincial guidelines. However, we are seeking further guidance to ensure that we are interpreting the guidelines correctly.

We will confirm our approach to snowmobile trails (and potentially re-open sales of seasons passes and day passes) in the near future, hopefully by 5pm on Thursday 14 January 2021.

So I am not sure why you are referencing the Haliburton Forest I read their communication it does not clearly state that they are open or not open it says they will be honouring season's pass holders and permits that have already been purchased it does not clearly state that they will be continuing to sell day passes just that passes that have already be sold will be honoured and you have to register outside you cannot go in the building
