No Staging at South End of TMSC 400

Sledders will no longer be able to stage at the south end of the TMSC 400 trail, commonly known as the old bowling alley lot.  The 400 trail has been rerouted across the west edge of the Lakes Community Church property and it ends at highway 36.  This new portion will enable riders to access the Shell station at the corner of  highways 36 and 49.  Riders will have a short run along the edge of 36 to reach the gas station.

The reroute across Church property is clearly marked with orange stakes, and we ask that sledders stay on the new trail and refrain from riding on the non-trail portions of the property.  There is also no staging at the Church and all vehicles will be towed.  Further,  there is no parking on Wilderness Park Road to the east of the Church.  There is a City of Kawartha Lakes by-law in effect for this road and all vehicles parked here will also be towed and ticketed.

Staging is still available at the clubhouse, at the bridge just north of the clubhouse, and at the Nogies Creek bridge right off of highway 36 on Bass Lake Road.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Yamaha ATV and Side by Side Demo Tour

The first Yamaha ATV and Side by Side Conquer Dirt Demo Tour was held at the Clubhouse on a very hot and humid Saturday July 18th 2015. It ran from 10:00 am until 3:00pm, and a total of 7 demo rides took place for a duration of approximately 30 minutes each.

People came from all over to check out the great selection of ATVs and Side By Sides brought in by Yamaha Canada and McGregor Sportsline. The ride went up the TMSC 480 trail and gave people the chance to see how the trails look with no snow.  After seeing the trails in the summer, one can truly appreciate how much time and effort our volunteers put in to create the beautiful snowmobile trails you that enjoy in the winter.

Porky’s Bridge Rebuild

TMSC volunteers along with volunteers from the Kawartha ATV Association were hard at work during the latter part of September and the first two weeks of October.  The bridge on the Porcupine trail (TMSC# 420) was in dire need of repair.

The old decking was removed from the existing 50′ bridge, the centre support was rebuilt, and nine additional bridge stringers were added to bring the total up to twelve.  Once this work was completed, the bridge was redecked, and new railings were installed.  Volunteer hours on this project totalled over 500 hours.
