Whether it’s your first visit, your first in a while, or you’re a regular to Sir Sam’s, we’re ready to help make your next ride with us a great one.

Swap sliding for riding this summer and enjoy mountain biking our 23km trail network, or hiking/trail running our 6km interpretive trail. Trail access opens  Saturday, May 22, with weekend lift service starting a month later on Saturday, June 26.

As we are opening while provincial restrictions are in place, please note that there will be no admittance to the chalet with the exception of washroom use. Our chalet-based services will continue to be available, limited however to “curbside” and/or “advance booking only” as noted below, for the duration of the lockdown:

  • Bike service and repair is available by appointment only, with pre-arranged pick up and drop off
  • Bike retail is open for curbside service
  • Rentals are available and must be booked in advance
  • Fresh, cold drinking water is available outside the chalet
  • Bottled/canned beverages and pre-packaged snacks available through curbside sales

We also request that all guests continue to mask, distance and sanitize as you did so wonderfully during the winter, and if you are feeling ill, to postpone your visit until you are well.

Getting here

We’re closer than you think! Sir Sam’s is just under an hour from Bracebridge/Gravenhurst, just over an hour from Peterborough and Lindsay and just over 2 hours from the eastern GTA or Belleville. From most destinations, the drive is quiet and picturesque as you move through rural farmland into the Highlands.
