Trail Closure due to Forestry Operations

Grey County Forest 31 (Copper Kettle) will be closed for approximately 3 weeks for forestry work starting today. When the rest of our area opens up this area will remain closed until we get the go ahead from the County. As always refer to the OFSC official map for trail status:https://trails.evouala.com/ofsc/#

It is the trail between Concession 10 and 14 near Copper Kettle, see maps below:

Closed….+13 in February!

Stoney Keppel trails are closed…this isn’t how I saw February going either.

Due to serious concerns regarding rider safety and property damage the Stoney Keppel Riders are forced to close their trails.

Snow bridges are collapsing, more and more rocks are becoming exposed and the trail condition has deteriorated drastically.

Please respect the landowners and stay off until we can regroup and re-open.

Trails looking great & SKR Groomer is back in action!

Thanks to all involved, our Kubota is back in operation. Thank you to the groomer team for shifting machines around over the last two weeks.

Gorgeous trails in Stoney Keppel today! #ofsc #district9 #snowmobile

Open-limited

We are open limited as of yesterday afternoon. Matt sent some photos in today to give a heads up about what to expect out there in the wetter areas. These photos are of the B trail in 2013 but he says we are pretty much the same water wise now. We don’t have the skid bridge this year though. Hoping for some colder temps!!

In 2013 volunteers built the bridge, Dave McNabb supplied the skids.

Grooming

We are planning on commencing grooming on Friday January 6th weather permitting. We have received a great deal of moisture in a short period of time and hopefully the mess will start to freeze by the weekend. Standby for more.
