Halfway There & Back Ride

Yep it’s the most confusing name for a snowmobile ride on the planet, but for good reason. You see, all die hard sledders have either been to or heard of this very special place. A place that is Halfway between two points. Halfway between some incredible sledding that links some even more famous places like Wawa, Sault Ste. Marie, Dubreuilville, and Chapleau. Named after Halfway Haven Lodge that is located on the D Trail ‘halfway’ between Wawa or Chapleau and Searchmont, it connects several communities and allows you to get deep into some of Algoma’s best snowmobiling. Plan your ride below and see what all the buzz is about.
