In 1963 four intrepid entrepreneurs met to forge an organization that would promote the newly popular sport of snowmobiling in the Dwight - Oxtongue area. This was the beginning of the Algonquin Snowmobile Club, the very first organized trail building club in Ontario. This group set about mapping and clearing trails, designing drags and spreading the Good News far and wide.
Their first effort, the LOBO Trail, between Dwight and Oxtongue, was the first groomed trail in Ontario. Since that time we have expanded our system to include almost 300 km of trails that run from Algonquin Park in the West, to Huntsville in the East, Kearney in the North to Dorset in the South. Our groomers are State Of The Art. Our incredible volunteer help and numerous diverse Social events all add to our claim "First In Ontario."

As an off-road experience snowmobiling is an inherently risky activity. The OFSC assumes every rider using an OFSC Prescribed Trail has read, understands and accepts the "Assumptions for OFSC Trail Use".
Notice for a legally compliant snowmobiler to access an Ontario Prescribed Snowmobile Trail is provided through Trail Status Reports as last known to the applicable snowmobile club and illustrated in the online Interactive Trail Guide (ITG).
