Snowmobiling in L&A

Snowmobiling

Hit the trail!

In L&A we are snowmobile central. You don’t have to live here to access over 200 kms of trails making us one of the premier snowmobiling networks in Ontario.

Remember to get your OFSC permit (required for all OFSC trails) then ride the trails across L&A County from Napanee to Arden; Perth Road Village to Amherstview; and up north through some amazing trails in Addington Highlands.

The Lennox and Addington Ridge Runners Snowmobile Club is a member of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC). Based in Yarker, the Ridge Runners have been looking after the local snowmobile trails for citizens and visitors since 1969. They are a great resource for local snowmobile events, trail conditions and news.

Exceptional trails make for a great day snowmobiling!

Ice skating awaits

Lace them up!

With over 100 lakes and rivers, when it comes to skating, we’ve got you covered! But, please be cautious and check weather conditions and ice safety first.

Throughout the winter the Strathcona Paper Centre in Napanee also hosts public skates. They also have skates, helmets and skate gliders available to rent or use.

In Amherstview, public skating is available at the WJ Henderson Recreation Centre. And, in Tamworth you can take a spin on the ice at the Stone Mills Recreation Centre.

Dark Sky Viewing Area

Enjoy crisp evenings & crystal clear sky

Stargazing doesn’t get much better than at The Lennox-Addington Dark Sky Viewing Area. An awe-inspiring place where the stars light up the night sky in a brilliant display. The area is known as the most southerly dark sky viewing area in Ontario, for providing an unobstructed view of the sky. People travel from urban areas all year long to witness the unimpeded beauty of the night sky. The parking lot is plowed and ready for stargazers and admission is free.

Museums and indoor activities

Winter temperatures not really your thing? No worries. There’s lots going on indoors in our communities to keep you busy. The County of L&A Libraries host many events year round. The L&A County Museum & Archives is the perfect place for history buffs to spend a cold winter day. They also host regular events throughout the season.

Ice fishing

Ice fishing is big here in Lennox & Addington County. Whether it’s Hay Bay, Beaver Lake or Skootamatta, there are plenty of great places to drill a hole and drop a line. Remember to check ice conditions first!

Geocaching

Yes, you can go geocaching in the winter although some caches may be a bit more tricky to locate amongst snow covered trails. L&A is known for its abundance of cache’s with over 1,500 in the area!
