Your excursion begins at our depot in downtown Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, where you will load up your sleds in our enclosed baggage cars and then sit back and relax as we transport you north, through the breathtaking winter wonderland of Algoma Country.
Enjoy scenic vistas of Lake Superior, snow choked rock cuts and deep mountain gorges as you wind your way through this rugged land towards the world famous Agawa Canyon. Once through the Canyon, the scenery gradually shifts from the mountainous pre-Cambrian shield to the boreal forests of the Great Clay Belt Region.
Get off along the line at Hawk Junction (Wawa) or Dubrevilville and ride the Superior Snow Challenge Loop or travel to the end of steel to begin your sledding adventure in the French Canadian town of Hearst, Ontario.
The Railway provides many options to choose from. You can take the train both ways and do your riding in one area or for those who want to spend more time on the trails than the rails, you can take the train north and sled back to the Sault or sled up and train back.
No matter where you choose, you will be in the heart of an incredible snowmobiler's paradise with over a thousand miles of well groomed and signed trails waiting for you to discover.
Your sledding adventure doesn't stop at the trails. You will discover friendly communities offering snowmobilers all the conveniences and comforts you desire after a day of riding. From quality, park at your door accommodations and restaurants to service centres, trail-side gas and local snowmobile clubs who take pride in their trails and northern hospitality.
The spirit of the north truly comes to life in winter. Hearst and the surrounding communities love to play host and with numerous carnivals, rallies and snowmobile racing events being held throughout the winter months, you will find more than trails to fill your days and nights.
Whether it's a couple of sleds, a large group, diehard riders or a relaxing family outing, incredible snowmobile experiences are waiting for you along the line.
