Kelvington may be known as “Canada’s hockey factory,” but the area has managed to manufacture some notable snowmobile trails as well. Bart Hartl is the Kelvington Trailblazers snowmobile club president and detailed which trail is a must-ride. “Our most popular trail is 211A from Kelvington to Greenwater with the heaviest traffic from Rosie's Round Lake Shelter to Greenwater. With the majestic scenery found in the Porcupine Provincial Forest and the Greenwater Provincial Park, 211A trail is a highly travelled route joining these two popular destinations.”
What’s there to see?
211C is a winding trail amongst spruce trees, is enveloped by an abundance of wildlife and overlooks lakes and valley. Your journey will take you into the past as you encounter long-forgotten homesteads, trappers cabins, abandoned sawmills and vehicles of generations past. “All of these details are left as a reminder of the hardships our forefathers endured and the struggles they faced in day-to-day living,” Hartl said.
Back in 2010 Rosie's Roundhouse Shelter was constructed with a unique hexagon design. The club could not imagine the buzz and traffic it would create. Tragedy struck in 2012 after a chimney fire enveloped the unique and one-of-a-kind shelter. Shortly after the incident the community rallied to construct a new shelter in its place. Be sure to stop in as you make your way through Kelvington.
How to access it
Riders can leave from Fisherman's Cove at Greenwater Provincial Park and follow the trail south along Highway 38. Alternately, you can leave your vehicle and trailers in Kelvington along Railway Avenue as the parking lot is always clear. From there you’re right on the trail with days of riding ahead of you.
