Snowmobile Trails in Sunset Country

With less congestion on our trails and a small regional population, you'll think you have the trails to yourself!

Go snowmobiling in Ontario without the crowds!

There are literally thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails in Ontario, Canada. The secluded snowmobile trails make Sunset Country a great destination for your next winter snowmobile vacation. The trails are maintained by volunteer snowmobile clubs and run mostly across lakes and through the forests. Town loops ensure you can access the trail system from any town or city.

The best part about our snowmobile trails is the fact there is no congestion and great riding conditions await you. Wide and well-marked trails ensure safety and enjoyment for riders of all levels of experience. The key is to have fun and you do this by dressing warm, staying on the trail, and obeying the regulations. This includes buying a local trail permit from the club in the area you'll be riding. After a fun-filled day on the trails stay at one of our winter resorts, hotels, motels, or B&Bs and relax in a winter wonderland. Enjoy good times with your friends and have a warm beverage by the fireplace.

Make it a winter family vacation!

Children will love snowmobiling with you. After the snowmobiling is over, the kids can enjoy making snowmen, ice fishing, or just running around to have fun in the snow. Snowmobiling really is fun for people of all ages.

Sunset Country is in OFSC District 17. The OFSC maintains an interactive trail guide map that shows which trails are open and ready for snowmobiling.  For more information on the Snowmobile Trails in Northwest Ontario visit the Ontario Travel Winter website or  NWOSTA
