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.

Loss of Trail Access

We have just been informed by one of our long-time landowners on the 619 (Chandos) trail that we have lost lost permission for access. The reason that this has happened is ATVs trespassing. As most snowmobilers know, this is the most common reason that landowners revoke access and it's a problem for clubs everywhere. We don't feel it's right to blame landowners for this - the problem really lies with those that don't respect private property.

The club will be reviewing options in the near future but you can expect more road-running in the future on this trail.

All the work we do as volunteers to keep trails going and some bad apples cause this to happen. Very disheartening.

As a groomer operator who was on the trails all winter, atv’s and side by sides were always something I’d run into wether it was just tire tracks leaving ruts in the trail or the time a red atv with a trailer on passed me at 3 am on the 619 trail. It’s a big problem for the ofsc and snowmobilers.

We work so hard to keep the trails good for the snowmobilers and the atv riders who really have no right to be on the trails, and are probably from out of town for their weekend of hell raising, cause the permission to be revoked. Very disappointing and infuriating. Gates need to be impossible to open off season.

Sorry to hear this....it must be so frustrating for the landowners.

Tis sad and maddening that the atv'ers can't obey private property signs. They don't care that it ruins things for them but also us sledders who pay way more for passes than they do. Soon there will be no trail access thanks to them , but they don't care for no one but themselves 😡😡😡

Quite honestly (and my family are ATVers) Most ATVers think they can go where ever they want and are purposely destructive to the trails. I guess they don’t see the fun in it unless their 2.5-3 inch lugs are tearing the trail up! We live on a back road and unfortunately it is a dirt road and every weekend they come through our road and spin circles and “drift” in corners. And we have to drive on it the rest of the summer. Those machines go anywhere so they think they have a right to!

This is horrible news... Very disappointing. 😔

Oh,crap.Here we go again with more trails being closed.

Terrible news 😢

Atv people put zero effort in and have zero respect ... most of them

Too bad there wasnt video footage

Punishing snowmobilers because of idiots on ATVs. This is like getting rid of the dog because the cat bit someone. Beyond frustrating

The new normal everywhere, our area has seen a trippling of atv traffic since covid, two main problems, they rhink they are allowed anywhere there us a trail of any kind, and they refuse to stay out of the wetlands, ponds and streams ! The Damage atv's with disrespectful operators do, us 100 times what snomobilers could ever cause !

Sad that happened !!
