MORRISBURG, Ontario – The sixteen (16) snowmobile clubs in District 1, Upper Canada Snowmobile Region of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs have been working very hard to prepare trails and are on the verge of opening pending the snow storm that is forecast.  We regret that circumstances beyond our control will prevent the whole system from opening at this time.  Approximately 25% of   our most popular trails will have to remain closed due to issues with our land use permission.  We want to warn snowmobilers that routes using abandoned rail lines are particularly affected and there will be closed gates along many of these corridors. 

DO NOT TRESPASS on closed trails and go to to the Interactive Trail Guide (ITG)  to check which trails are available. 

We want to assure our permit holders that we are continuing to seek solutions and if trails become available it will be reflected on the ITG.  Please have patience with our clubs because the volunteers are doing their best to provide trails for the enjoyment of the thousands of snowmobilers who have purchased permits.

Our district office is located in Morrisburg, and looks after administration and fieldwork inquiries for the 16 clubs. We have over 3000 km of marked groomed trails. The clubs in District One sells over 10,000 trail permits annually to families in Eastern Ontario.  The O.F.S.C. mission is dedicated to providing strong leadership and support to its member clubs. It is the members who establish and maintain the quality of our snowmobile trails, which are used in a safe and environmentally responsible manner, for the enjoyment of organized snowmobilers.
