Rideau Ridge Riders Trail
The Rideau Ridge Riders boasts a membership of 400 members from Ontario and the USA, and maintains 224 kms of scenic trails. The Rideau Ridge Riders Snowmobile Club was formed in 1974 and joined the United Counties of Snowmobile Clubs that same year. In 1976, the club became a member of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC). The Smiths Falls and District Snowmobile Club was formed in 1970/71, also a member of the United Counties, joined the OFSC in 1976. In April 1992, the Rideau Ridge Riders and the Smiths Falls and District Club amalgamated to form one club. Since our trail network parallels the Rideau Canal System, from Smiths Falls to Kingston, Ontario, Canada, it was appropriate to adopt the name Rideau Ridge Riders for the amalgamated club. The Rideau Ridge Riders provides several scenic trails which meander through woodlands and fields, along with access to the villages of Portland, Newboro, Westport, Elgin, Seeleys Bay, Rideau Ferry and Smiths Falls where snowmobilers can gas up, visit the various restaurants and unique shops, stay overnight at one of the great Country Inns and ride the trails for a few days. The Club often holds it’s meetings at the Lombard Glen Golf and Country Club.
