10 Restaurants on the North Shore Loop

Lunch stops and local eateries to plan your snowmobile trip

The North Shore Loop is perfect for weekend warriors. It’s nice and close to amenities like food, fuel and places to stay, and provides the excellent remote sledding you want. Communities and services are always close by about every 30 to 50 km, not often found here in Northern Ontario.

Every community on the loop offers a staging area, allowing you to start from any direction. These staging areas are listed in the Algoma Trails Guide. You can stage in Sudbury as well because there’s a connector from Massey to Spanish. A side loop leads to St. Joseph Island.

Sledders arriving from Michigan can access Ontario snowmobile trails from the Drummond Island Ice Bridge to get to St. Joseph Island, and from there, can ride the North Shore Loop when the Ice Bridge is open.
