The Highland Rovers groom a total of 112 km of trails over the snowmobile season.
Snowmobiling is your sport. Keep it alive and well for the long term. Snowmobiling goes beyond just buying a trail permit. Your active involvement and participation, no matter how big or small, is crucial and vital to keep snowmobiling thriving and fun for many seasons to come.
We are always looking for volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering click the Volunteer link and see what you can do to improve the snowmobile experience.
In the 1993/94 season, the HRSC assumed the 25-kms of trail from WALLS to BEAR LAKE. This section of TOP D is commonly called the Seguin Trail. These 25 kms of the Seguin Trail is one of the highest traveled trails in the province. Many Clubs have tried to solve the grooming problems of this section of the Seguin Trail, but all of them share the same problem. This section is the farthest point from their base of operation.
In the 1995/96 season, the HRSC purchased our second industrial groomer, a Ford Sur-Trac groomer. The HRSC may have started as a small Alpine Club, but we have become the hub of a major intersection of both north/south and east/west TOP trails. TOP D runs north to North Bay and ends at the Manitoba border. TOP C103D travels west to meet TOP C near Parry Sound. TOP D101B will take you south to Dwight and Dorset. TOP C102D will lead you to Huntsville.
Many of the minutes and records of the HRSC were lost in Ray Marshall’s house fire in 1982. If anyone can shed more light on our history from 1978 to 1982 please contact a member of the executive.
The Highland Rovers Snowmobile Club has lost a valued friend. Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Charles “Ian” Hunter, who passed away on December 31st after a lengthy battle with cancer.
Ian has been involved with the Highland Rovers Snowmobile Club in numerous ways since the mid-1970’s, and held executive positions for many of those years, including being the Vice President and Trail Boss.
Ian also took great pride in being a Trail Warden and was the Trail Warden Coordinator for the Highland Rovers Snowmobile Club. At an Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs Convention, he was honoured with the OFSC Trail Warden of the Year Award.
Some of his lesser-known Club involvement included being Santa Claus at the annual Christmas Pot Luck Supper, flipping burgers and “over-toasting” buns at the Club barbecue, and folding newsletters and licking stamps to prepare the Club newsletter. Ian was always happy to volunteer – no job was too big or too small. Those of us who had the privilege of riding with Ian will miss that Ian Hunter smile. Ian, may all your trails be brushed wide and groomed smooth.
