Ottawa Valley Recreational Trail Open Houses

We expect a BIG showing for each of the four open houses hosted by Lanark County to discuss the future of the Ottawa Valley Recreational Trail. We currently use a portion for the new BEAST 311 from Carleton Place to Smiths Falls.

Mark your calendars:

– 26 Jan 17 – Beckwith Twp Office
– 2 Feb 17 – Carleton Place Town Hall
– 16 Feb 17 – Almonte Old Town Hall

Dec 23


As a reminder, BEAST 203 remains NOT AVAILABILE due to landowner issues. This is especially important between Conley and Joy’s Rd and Eagleson Rd and Old Richmond Rd. Trespassing here on these trails could mean they remain unavailable for the season. Volunteers are working on gaining the proper approvals.

We Are Going Yellow!

Great news! We have a few trails at limited availability in the Stittsville and Carleton Place areas. For full details see: http://www.thebeast.ca/?page_id=395. Stay on the yellow trails. All other trails are not available. Swamps are not frozen and there are many water hazards. Be cautious about ditches as culverts are not covered. Drive with extra caution as there may be hazards below the snow. Enjoy!

“A – Trail” changes

The A – Trail just south of Almonte has been rerouted. A long time
landowner has seeded out a large acreage of his land. He has
requested us not to use his property for the 2016/2017 season to
prevent crop damage. We have signed the typical entry points to
this land as ” Trail Closed “. Please stay off his property until
further notice. Spread the word so that we can secure future use.
On a positive note, the BEAST has secured access to property on
Old Almonte Road (Patterson Street). This access is limited to
the 2016/2017 season. A big thank you to Salim Houchaimi of
Almonte for helping us out. Salim and his family operate the
Gourmet Restaurant on highway 7 in Carleton Place. If you
have a chance please stop by the Gourmet Restaurant for a
great meal and thank Salim and his family for their help. As
always The BEAST is very appreciative of our landowners
generous support of our club.
To that end we would like to remind all snowmobilers to obey all
signs and “STAY ON THE TRAIL”. Any and all off trail riding
deters future access to private property.

Swail Trail Improvements

Here are some pictures of work completed to improve on the E trail between Carroll Road and Hwy. 43 North west of Smiths Falls. This was a collaborative effort between the BEAST and Rideau Ridge Riders. This work could not of happened without the dry summer we had and the continued co-operation of our understanding and supportive landowner Vince Carroll. This is a 2km stretch of trail that was hard to maintain, sign and groom each winter with a water hole to try and tip toe across. A culvert has also been added as well for the water hole troubles.img_1190 img_1192 img_1211 img_1213 img_1215 img_1233 img_1236 img_1238 img_1243 img_1245 img_1257 img_1260 img_1262 img_1267 img_1270 img_1271 img_1272 img_1273
