The Dryden Power Toboggan club will be having a Grand Opening of the L301 snowmobile Trail that connects the Ear Falls and Red Lake Touring Region to the main trail system in Northwest Ontario.

The Ribbon cutting ceremony will be at 10:00 am on March 3, 2012 at the intersection of the A trail East of Dryden and the L301 trail north of Dryden just off the North Road (past the ski hill) at the MacLean Lake Road. At the half-way point the Dryden Power Toboggan Club will have a bonfire and plenty of hotdogs and hot chocolate for the riders to enjoy on their way to Ear Falls or Red Lake. Riders from the Red Lake District Trail Masters and area and the White Knight Riders Snowmobile Club will join in the ride back to Dryden.

This project has been funded by P.A.C.E., The North Western Ontario Trails Association, Dryden Power Toboggan Club and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs. Volunteers from the Dryden Power Toboggan Club and the White Knights Riders Snowmobile Club have spent countless hours planning, brushing, signing and grooming the trail to get it ready for this historical event.

The Dryden Power Toboggan club is proud of its efforts to support tourism in the community and look forward to the benefits this trail will bring to the local businesses.

Trail permits are required and special event permits will be available for purchase that morning, riders also have the option of purchasing 3 day or 7 day permits. For more information please call the North Western Ontario Snowmobile Trails Association office at 937-2137 or email dptc@drytel.net.
