Osgoode Snowmobile Club Trail
The ink is still drying on a brand new agreement between the City of Ottawa and a coalition of 3 District 1 clubs, Osgoode Carleton, Kemptville and Carleton Regional. These 3 clubs have taken over the winter management of a 27 kilometer abandoned rail bed that runs from Leitrim to Kemptville on the outskirts of Ottawa. The Rideau has been the site of some snowmobile fatalities in recent years. Follow OFSC Safe Snowmobiling rules, ride permtted and groomed trails.
It will now be possible for riders to travel from Kemptville to Carleton Regional Club without crossing the river. Ottawa and surrounding areas are experiencing rapid growth which has been eroding the trail system in the built up areas. This gives the clubs a secure trail which will not need to be rerouted every year.
