Which Trails Are Best to Try?
Of the vast network of groomed snowmobile trails in the Laurentians, a few stand out above the rest. For instance, riding up to the peak of Devil’s Mountain will present visitors with an unmatched view of the valley below and surrounding mountain ranges. In the fall time, this is exceptionally true as Mont Tremblant has some of the most stunning fall foliage in all of Canada. Another great attraction along one of the marked snowmobile trails is Windigo Falls, a waterfall that slopes over a boulder and never freezes. When it snows, the surrounding area gets covered in white powder, making it a popular pit-stop among snowmobilers.
For those willing to go the extra mile to explore unique Laurentian beauty, there is a snowmobile trail leading up to the Baskatong reservoir, which is a large inner sea covering that freezes over in the winter. Huge crevices form in the ice following the tidal range, giving the mass exquisite beauty.. In the winter, snowmobile clubs maintain an ice bridge over the reservoir. making the area fairly accessible to advanced snowmobilers, but it is still highly recommended that guests visit this icy attraction with a guide.
