The Township of Greater Madawaska

Calabogie West Snowmobile Trail

Trail Desciption

A 30 km return trail running S/W from Calabogie to Mountain Chute Dam. Although the trail starts at the intersection of Calabogie Rd and Viewmount Drive, just east of Calabogie Peaks Resort, the best place to access the trail is from the Madawaska Nordic X-C Skiing trailhead where ample parking can be found. Follow the main X-C ski trail 1 km to the crossroads where the Madawaska Nordic trails intersect with the Calabogie West snowmobile trail. Turn left and you are on your way.

This lovely rough and tumble forest trail runs somewhat parallel to Calabogie Rd and Hydro Dam Rd crossing over both at several points before arriving at the base of the Mountain Chute Hydro Dam where scenic views of the Madawaska River can be found. Access to the trail can be gained at any of these crossover points should you wish a ride of shorter duration.
