the Paudash Trail Blazers Snowmobile Club

Paudash Trail Blazers Snowmobile Club has just over 300 km of amazing trails extending from Gooderham to near Bancroft and from just north of Apsley to the south end of Algonquin Park.

Our trails connect to other great trails going in every direction.

There are services available through our club area (gas, food snowmobile dealers and accommodation) so you can be assured of an enjoyable ride no matter where you go.

Watch for club events like the cookout during the sledding season as well, where you can enjoy a BBQ’d delight and a drink.

Effective Midnight March 21, 2020 - all.OFSC trails will be closed.

Everyone needs to do their part in trying to flatten the curve.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:

Are these policed at all? Last weekend we saw a ton of atvs.

Sadly, our trails are now closed.

Our Big Ol' Deere has been put to hibernation earlier than we all wanted, but as per the pattern of this Sledding season, Mother Nature had her own plans!

Please respect our land owners and stay off the trails.

Thank you to our volunteers, groomer operators and club members for a great season!!!

Well done neighbour ! It was a tough start-up (3 melts in 5 weeks) but a strong finish. So proud to be next door to you guys !

First year on the trails (well one weekend last year was really our first taste) and we logged 2100km. Missed this weekend cause of picking up a new sled. Thought I might get to try it this coming weekend but all this rain it’s no surprise. Can’t wait until next year. Two sleds and it’ll be awesome. It’s going to be a long spring, summer and fall looking at the new sled sitting there. Thanks for an awesome year. You all rock

As first year riders and Paudash Trail Blazers we caught the bug and started late in the season in February. We managed to get over 1,800km's of fantastic sledding on our trails and kudos to all who made it possible to enjoy such fabulously maintained trails!

Thanks to everyone was an amazing year trails were never so good had our last trip up Haliburton trail yesterday to eagle lake and trails were so smooth but now lots of stones and bare patches and now the rain ! Time to clean up the machines for the season ! Did s pick up of few cans on our way that were left on trail stops. Thanks so much you are awesome!!

Thank you to all the groomers, mechanics, and support staff for a great year. I was able to get out Saturday for a fantastic final ride.

Amazing trails and excellent work this yr!!! Once again thank you to all the club members for a great job

Thanks for the Great Trails but short year

We enjoyed your trails immensely and got our last run in Saturday. 612 to the E to lunch in the new algonquin restaurant and then home. What a way to wrap up a great year.

Damn Mother Nature!! I could say a few words, but NSFW!! LOL πŸ˜‚ It was a good, albeit, short season. Great work on the trails. They were in great shape, the few times I got out πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž.

Thank you to everyone for your hard work!! Very much appreciated! So sad the season came to end so quickly.

Thank you all for a great year. I had the opportunity to ride last weekend. It is sad that the season is over in our area. Heading to Timmins for a week to finish it off right.

Please meet Connor McCracken!

Connor is the youngest of our Groomer operators, he has been grooming for the last two years but had been grooming with his Grandfather who was a groomer operator with our club for many years!

Connor is an avid snowmobiler, when he is not in a groomer he is out scouting trails, making sure other groomer operators are okay, and always the first to jump in to lend a hand in any situation!

We are lucky to have Connor, he is leading the way for the next generation of Groomer operators!

Thanks for everything you do, Connor!
