The Leeds and Grenville Snowmobile Association (LGSA) is an association of four snowmobile clubs who collectively groom approximately 700kms of trails in Eastern Ontario.



Rideau Ridge Riders Snowmobile Club

The Rideau Ridge Riders Snowmobile Club was formed in 1974 and joined the United Counties of Snowmobile Clubs that same year. In 1976, the club became a member of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC). The Smiths Falls and District Snowmobile Club was formed in 1970/71, also a member of the United Counties, joined the OFSC in 1976.

In April 1992, the Rideau Ridge Riders and the Smiths Falls and District Club amalgamated to form one club. Since our trail network parallels the Rideau Canal System, from Smiths Falls to Kingston, Ontario, Canada, it was appropriate to adopt the name Rideau Ridge Riders for the amalgamated club.

The Rideau Ridge Riders boasts a membership of 300+ members from Ontario and the USA, and maintains 224 kms of scenic trails.

Trails

There are two TOP trails running through the area:
  • TOPS E trail Starts at Napanee and runs through Smiths Falls, connecting with the BEAST and K&P Club to the north and the Lennox & Addington Ridge Runners to the south.
  • E105 intersects the TOPS E trail at Forfar, connecting with the Athens Club and the Seaway Valley to the east.
These two TOP trails form part of the new Leeds & Grenville Snowmobile Association showcase trail on which snowmobilers can travel in a 235 km loop through the Athens & District, Elizabethtown, Grenville, Kemptville, and the Rideau Ridge Riders snowmobile clubs.

The Rideau Ridge Riders provides several scenic trails which meander through woodlands and fields, along with access to the villages of Portland, Newboro, Westport, Elgin, Seeleys Bay, Rideau Ferry and Smiths Falls where snowmobilers can gas up, visit the various restaurants and unique shops, stay overnight at one of the great Country Inns and ride the trails for a few days.

Clubhouse

The Lombard Glen Golf & Country Club serves as our Clubhouse during the winter months. It is easily accessible from the trail, has loads of parking, and is open on week-ends for breakfast and warm-up opportunities.
