Borderland Snowmobile Club Trails

The Borderland Snowmobile Club grooms and maintains over 500 kilometres (300 miles) of some of the best wilderness snowmobile trails in Northwest Ontario connecting the towns of Rainy River, Nestor Falls, Emo, Fort Frances and Mine Centre along the Minnesota-Ontario border.

These trails are scenic, uncongested and provide a variety of riding styles along the Rainy River border, up to Lake of Woods and over to Rainy Lake. 

Snowmobilers can ride or trailer into Canada from International Falls Minnesota or Baudette, Minnesota.

The Borderland Snowmobile Club and its trails network connect you to ride East to Atikokan on the L601 Trail or continue on to Thunder Bay or hop the A Trail North and go to White Otter Castle. Riders can also travel North from Fort Frances to Kenora on the L601.
