This site does not publish snowmobile trail maps on on-line. Neither do many of the area clubs. The reason for this is simple, as map sales and donations are requested to help maintain snowmobile trail  grooming in many areas. Map sales and donations are used as an income source to pay for the map, trail maintenance, purchase equipment, groomer gas, repairs, etc . . . so snowmobilers can enjoy the trails.

You can use the ice at your own risk, but pay heed to the locks, bridges and culverts where the ice likely is thinner than the rest of the canal.

It is important that the rule are followed:
