The northeastern Ontario map below is a link to "Very
Detailed Map Sections" which are printable on legal sized paper
8.5" x 14". Each map section is very detailed, showing all the
highways, cities, towns, roads, railways, rivers, etc. in northern
Ontario. It also shows the mileage between the towns. Each section is
approximately 70kb so your page will load very fast.
Snowmobile Advisory: Due to the lack of snow in our area
(roughly 10 to 20cm ((6" to 8")) on the ground as of February 19th,
2007) I do not recommend that you snowmobile in this area this
season. According to the weather network we are below the normal
temperatures and no sufficient snow is expected in our area for at
least another week.
At this time I would also like to voice my concerns with the
Ontario Provincial Police and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile
Clubs (O.F.S.C.) TV Advertizement for snowmobiling in Ontario.
I am getting older and perhaps my hearing is going bad as well
as my eyes but to date and as far as I can remember, I have never
seen or heard on the TV Ad, that there are exceptions to snowmobiling
in Ontario, by not paying for a trail permit.
If you visit the OFSC site, you should check out their
Ontario and the Law page. You should notice that they put in big
bold letters that Permits Are Mandatory In Ontario and that An
Ontario Trail Permit is required to travel on Ontario Federation of
Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) Prescribed Trails. But look at the STOP
graphic and notice the asterisk at the end of the sentence: It is the
Law in Ontario for recreational sleds*. Then check out the fine print
at the bottom of the graphic. *Exceptions or partial exceptions for
specific user groups.
Please Note: I am not a lawyer so "Please" read the
Snow Vehicles Act, ONTARIO REGULATION 185/01 Trail Permits as the
listed Exemptions of this act, may apply to you. You should also read
Access Act R.S.O. 1990, Chapter R.34 as this may also apply to
you. However, if it is your intent to actually use the OFSC trails
for snowmobiling purposes, I would "STRONGLY"
suggest that you purchase a permit.
