I was told by a snowmobile enthusiast that the Seguin Trail was for use exclusively by the snowmobile clubs during the winter months. I thought this sounded unfair especially if someone wanted to walk down the trail, so I wrote to the Park to Park Trail Association to find the answer.

Here is the official response:

Hi Randie,

The snowmobile clubs have exclusive MOTORIZED use of the trail between December 1st and March 31st. The Seguin Trail Management Plan does allow for other non-motorized users to use the trail during that time such as hikers and skiers. The problem is that it is very dangerous to use the trail with the high rate of speed that the sleds travel. People who do use the trail tend to use it during the early morning week days.
Although the management plan allows these other uses, we don't recommend people use the trail during the winter. We also work with the local clubs and OPP to enforce speed limits (50km) and club education of sharing the trail but it is difficult.
