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.

Paudash Trail Blazers

Caution!

We have switched all of our trails to limited "yellow" condition. With the amount of wet snow and freezing rain that we got over the weekend, we are battling a lot of wash outs, over hanging limbs and trees down.

Our trails will stay yellow until we are able to assess the entire trail system. Please use extreme caution!

We ask that if you are out on the trails and are able to help with some brushing, we are greatly appreciative of any help you can give! Please be safe and use caution if you are removing any brush or tree limbs.

For the most part any over hanging tree limbs, just need to be shaken of the access snow and they will pop right back up to where they should be!

Thank you again!!!

We should be up there this weekend, will help any way we can while we're out.....

Was out riding satruday, tried to knock the snow off all the trees I could but I'm sure it didnt do much as it was still snowing

All hands on deck!!!

Mother nature doesn't like to let us rest....with this storm of freezing rain and now lots of wet snow we have tons of branches and trees leaning over the trails. This will make riding and grooming the trails difficult to impossible so we are appealing to everyone to HELP do your part and clear as much as you can in your travels. If you're riding the trail and swerving to avoid branches, consider clearing a few and not just riding by thinking that someone else will deal with it.

However, IMPORTANT, please be careful to only pull over in a safe spot, where riders can see you!!!

Thanks for your help and support!

Very disappointed today after being out on the Chandos Lake trail. As we were trying to move a giant branch blocking our way, 8 sledders passed us. Then after continuing along the trail did we not come across several branches blocking our way. So the 8 people who passed us just drove over the branches. Rude! I have a greater appreciation for all the volunteers who clear the trails. Maybe if everyone helped out the trials might get done faster.

Despite a valiant effort by our groomer operators we had to shut down grooming last night.
Warm temperatures and wet sticky snow are not conclusive with grooming trails. All this wet snow with some freezing rain have caused havoc with the trees on our system again!!!
You can see how deep the snow is on our John Deere from it coming off the trees.
When the snow is wet like this, we end up doing more damage then good to the trails.
We ask that you please be patient and we will be back at it, as soon as Mother Nature allows!

Lots of deadfall limbs on trails (we stopped to move several latrger ones) and a tree across the Silent Lake trail. Probably 8-10” diameter and tree blocked trail completely.

Good call guys! Old Hastings doing the same!!

You can only do what you can do. Nice work

For anyone planning a ride to Harcourt to try out the new Algonquin Cookhouse, please be advised that they are planning to open in the next few weeks!
The owner is very excited, and is loving the anticipation of having sledders there for a great meal, but he doesn't want to have sledders planning a trip and not getting food!

We will make sure to keep you all in the loop on when the grand opening will be!!!

Nice ride from our cottage. All the amenities in one spot. Looking forward to the restaurant opening.

We were at the gas station last weekend and didn’t notice but we’ll go again once opened. Nice ride from Paudash

Can't wait! We were there yesterday lol but will definitely go again once it's open!

Looking forward to it missed it over the last bunch of years

That's great news... we have missed having that great spot!! We'll get a group together!

Looking forward to the opening 😎

Can’t wait!

I so want you to survive once opened. Is a great snowmobile and atv lunch destination from our place. Please dont open half way through a season (be it winter snowmobile or summer ATV) as you will not get the regular traffic you need to survive. Wait for spring and advertise a lot. Then the customers will make it a destination. I hope for the best for you and look forward to trying the algonquin again.

I’m Jason lake the owner of the newly renovated Algonquin Cookhouse I’m excited to get it open asap ,we have a few more design Elements to add and the new kitchen is almost completed But we are full speed ahead , chefs , servers , bar tenders , Are all hired and training will be under way soon Thanks for your patience and I promise you will love the new look and of course delicious food will be served See everyone soon Cheers J lake

Is that the place that says opening soon beside the gas station?

Nice about time

Good luck bud
