Hello My wife and I are looking at going to Dugan Lake trail on Sunday June 29. Anyone interested let me know. We're up near Barry's Bay so if anyone knows any trails around there or interested in joining us at Dugan lake and want to hook up send me a message. I'm a newbie with slightly modified jeep. I'm looking for trails around 2 rating and practice before going to trailfest in August. Thanks Fred
Three Mountains and Dugan Lake are mostly "overland" types of trails and old forest roads. Three Mountains is more interesting because after you wander up the side of the mountain you get a nice view. That's where we usually stop for lunch. The front part of Three Mountains has seen some logging but 95% of the trail was still there last year.
Might also be worth checking in with EOTB (www.eotb.ca) or with Ottawa Jeep Club or Upper Ottawa Valley Jeep Club (on Facebook). EOTB runs summer camp the August long weekend and runs trails in Calabogie. Usually Three Mountains is on the stock run list for that weekend.
I have a summer place in Barry's Bay, would love to find some Jeep worthy trails in that area. I've explored most of the Thomas P Murray recreational trails and they are fun enough on a dirt bike or ATV but are not that interesting in a Jeep.
Thanks for updates on those trails. Barry's bay is 30 min from us maybe we can hook up, I'm here first week of August. Going to trailfest first, I'm up September long weekend up until sept 6. Calabogie might be interesting to try to.
