Southern Ontario Snowmobiling: Erin

Here are two fabulous Ontario snowmobling day trips that can be done in OFSC District 4. When there is enough snow, this is a great place to ride with locals and meet new friends at cafes where you will find some of the best tasting food around. Wild life can also be spotted when you are out in farmers fields, so keep those eyes peeled and cameras ready when you come here with friends or family!
