Algonquin Snowmobile Club (ASC)
In 1963 four intrepid entrepreneurs met to forge an organization that would promote the newly popular sport of snowmobiling in the Dwight – Oxtongue area. This was the beginning of the Algonquin Snowmobile Club, the very first organized trail building club in Ontario. This group set about mapping and clearing trails, designing drags and spreading the Good News far and wide. Their first effort, the LOBO Trail, between Dwight and Oxtongue, was the first groomed trail in Ontario. Since that time they have expanded their system to include almost 300 km of trails that run from Algonquin Park in the west, to Huntsville in the east, Kearney in the north to Dorset in the south. Their groomers are state of the art. Incredible volunteers help and organize numerous diverse social events which all add to our claim “First In Ontario”.
