What Are Some Good Snowmobile Trails in Ontario, Canada?

The French Connection Loop, the Bon Echo Loop, the Gold Rush Tour and the Abitibi Canyon Loop are some good snowmobile trails in Ontario, Canada. Ontario has the world's largest interconnected snowmobile trail network. The province has over 18,500 miles of trails, many of which are maintained by the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs. This non-profit organization assists member and non-member snowmobilers with trail maps and information, safety training, trip planning and necessary permits.

The French Connection Loop is a two-trip that winds through the predominantly French areas of Northeastern Ontario. The town of Morrisburg, just south of highway 401 off of exit 750, is a recommended starting point. The trail meanders through farmland and forests and along the banks of the St. Lawrence River.

In the Ontario Highlands, the Bon Echo Loop typically starts from either Bancroft or Cloyne. Two days worth of riding traverses abandoned railroad lines and densely forested lake shores.

The Gold Rush Tour takes riders from farmland to the deep forests around Temiskaming and Elk lakes and past both working and historic gold mines, including Kirkland Lake, Shining Tree and Timmons.

One of the wildest and most remote trails in Ontario is the Abitibi Canyon Loop. Riders have wide trails and long stretches of riverside trails that are uninterrupted by roads and bridges.
