News Snowmobile trails around Haliburton County remain closed SHARE ON: Smith Autumn, contributor, Wednesday, Dec. 31st, 2014 Snowmobile trails in Haliburton County and surrounding areas remain closed. Enthusiasts are asked to park their sleds and be patient. Conditions are very bad and potentially dangerous. The ground, waterways, and swamps are not frozen, and there isn’t a snow base to protect you or your sled from any obstacles on the trails. There are reports of a few limited trails north-east of Sault St. Marie and north of Timmins. You can get full updates on trail conditions by going to the Interactive Trail Guide at the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs.
