OFSC Abitibi Canyon Loop 

The Abitibi Canyon Loop is located just north of ordinary in OFSC District 15 - Northern Corridor Du Nord.

The loop itself offers a unique opportunity to ride alongside the ancient Abitibi River, on one of OFSC's northern-most trails (A-103). The trails and hydro corridors are long and uninterupted by roads. At the top of the loop, you can cross the Abitibi Canyon Dam and revel in the spectacular view of the massive Abitibi River.

One of Northeastern Ontario's famous powder highways - A103.

Permits for OFSC District 15 - Northern Corridor Du Nord can be purchased through Cochrane Polar Bear Riders Club or Smooth Rock Falls Artic Riders Snowmobile Club. Not enough adventure for you? Snowmobile to the edge of James Bay with Extreme Snowmobile Tours
