This is one of the premiere touring routes in Ontario, offering some of the most diverse trails and scenery in the world. The 710 km route, located in Northeastern Ontario, covers the Top A trail to the A107C, Top C to A111C, to Top A and then back to New Liskeard on the A108.
The Gold Rush Tour was created in the 1990’s by snowmobile club pacesetter Mike Farr and fellow volunteers. This tour will take you from the wide open agriculture expanses of Temiskaming shores through the deep and rugged forests, and ecologically memorable Elk Lake, and over and along vast hydro corridors that lead to both historic and operating gold mines in Shining Tree, Timmins and Kirkland Lake.
The scenery is unmatched and unrivalled, offering opportunities for photos that will make your Facebook or Instagram feed go viral. The Gold Rush tour offers multifarious trail elements, creating a diverse and ever-changing ride. The distinctiveness of the trails on this loop, mingled with the impressive industrial mining spectacles, make the Gold Rush Tour a one of a kind!
