Deep River has an endless network of logging roads, cross-country ski trails and snowmobile trails. Many of these roads and trails are favorites of locals who like to mountain bike.


  • There are two networks of trails within minutes of town. The Silver Spoon and Cranberry Lake Trail System is maintained in winter by the Deep River Cross-Country Ski Club. Maps are available that outline these trail systems from Deep River Community Association (613-584-3373).
  • A second network of snowmobile and cross-country ski trails is at the end of Bass Lake Road, just north of Deep River. One route that some of the locals enjoy is at the end of Bass Lake Rd to follow the pipe line for 2 km and take the main snowmobile trail to the left. Follow this for 2 km to T-intersection and take left down to Big Bass Lake and Little Bass Lake.
  • One logging road network is off the Wylie Rd. Topographical maps are recommended if you are going to venture onto these routes.
