Espanola and Districts Snowmobile Club experience the thrill of riding south over the LaCloche Mountains towards Whitefish Falls, Manitoulin Island, Killarney and over the 120 foot steel bridge crossing the Vermillion River towards Nairn Centre. The Espanola trail system cross's several lakes which can be enjoyed by those who enjoy lake running. (O.F.S.C. ice markers indicate that the ice has been tested in the immediate area of the marker by volunteers). Over the past few years the club has put their efforts into building land based trails around 80% of the lakes for the riders that don't feel comfortable riding on lakes. This also provides earlier season starts!!!
