Winter Trails Update – 2020/2021

Winter Trails Update

Bracebridge Resource Management Centre:

Currently, singletrack trails are manually groomed by snowshoers and hikers. Please continue to monitor weather and trail conditions before riding! Coming late this winter to our equipment lineup is a Snowdog B13MER. This will allow us to keep trails groomed and in pristine condition without delay throughout the winter season.

  • Recommended fat bike tire width of 3.8″, studded or non.
  • Recommended PSI of 1-4 in softer snow and 6-8 PSI in hard packed/groomed snow.
  • While the BRMC is a multi-use trail system, you’ll notice many XC skiers, hikers, snowshoes along your travels on your fatbike. Please respect all other trail users and give way when necessary.
  • XC Ski Trackset Etiquette:
    • We recommend pre-planning your singletrack loop from the SOUTH parking lot.
    • We recommend that fat bike users avoid the XC Ski Tracksets whenever possible.
    • If required to cross these groomed tracksets, please only cross at 90 degrees. This allows for minimal effect on the skiers safety and enjoyability on the trails
  • New seasonal maps will be displayed at both trail heads with highlighted winter groomed singletrack to help pre-plan your route.
  • New seasonal signage will be installed at both trailheads. See below.

BRMC South Lot Parking (Holiday Park Drive) –

  • New for 2021, the Town of Bracebridge has added the South Lot Parking Lot (Holiday Park Drive) to their list of snow removal sites. (Thank you!)
  • You’ll note that washroom facilities are now available at the south lot also.
  • We recommend that fat bikers use this trail entrance to alleviate the parking congestion in the North Parking Lot.
