Just got back from that area. Lots of snow, 4 feet plus in many areas. No gas between Hornepayne and Hearst (approx. 110 miles). Manitouwadge groomer was down while we were there, but trails were still decent. Hopefully they are up and running again by now (any info. ski?). If you have any questions, PM me.

Have a good trip!

Thanks for the Pics.

We have started in Hearst and rode East the last 2 years. This year we are going West. WAWA Marathon then back.
I have a 2000 Formula Deluxe 600 gets very good gas mileage.
? will I have enough gas from Hearst to Hornypane if I take it easy?
The others i ride with will be carrying extra gas for this part of our 3 day back pack trip, I would rather not have to invest in extra tanks if I don't have to.

How were the trails we are leaving Monday

It is 110 miles from Hornepayne to Hearst, so it depends on what you can get out of a tank. If you take it easy, you should be OK. If you have others carrying gas in your group, I wouldn't worry about it. Just be sure to fill it to the top in Hornepayne.

The trails were great. Smooth and fast the entire way.

Hearst to Hornypane is a good 110 miles. My 600HO could not make it without spare gas. May want to double check the trail into Hearst to make sure it is groomed....was not groomed and had 2+ feet of fresh snow when we went thought there a couple weeks ago. I ended up missing the trail and slid down a ravine...lucky we found a tow truck with a 300ft cable (used to yank logging truck out) to yank us out or we would still be there...never thought I would be complaining about to much snow, especially this year.

You guys must spin your track more than I do. 2 weeks ago I clocked 105 miles from gas station to gas station between Hearst and Hornepayne. It is a great ride!!

The Companion Motel in Hearst is a great place to stay. Bring extra cash for The Queens.

Unfortunately we did not find out about Queens until we were leavening the next day..of course after a $500 tow charge I was not in the mood to spend more. We also stayed at the Companion hotel…like the warm garage.

The trail from Manitouwadge to Hornepayne -A trail North was just groomed on Friday so it should be in great shape. There is a section NE of Manitouwadge approximately 1/2 mile that has been plowed due to logging. The Trail D110 to Marathon was groomed on Feb 8 so it should be good. There are a few places in "the Wadge" to stay. And yes they are right please do not pass a gas station when you see one, better safe than sorry. The weather looks great this coming week you guys should have a great ride. If you need accomodations in Marathon we stayed at the Marathon Harbour Inn -nice clean, large rooms with restaurant next door and gas across the street, Have fun!! Carole

2005 800 Renegade Powertek. Yes, I always carry the jerry can with gas in it when riding in Ontario.

The trail goes right through the gas station parking lot in Hornepayne.
