I will kick of a response to your question, and I am sure someone more knowledgeable will join in. Kennelly Mountain is in Eastern Ontario near Calabogie. So as the name implies, there is likely some Canadian Shield and elevation changes.

A motocross track and a ton of new trail cut for the event. Expect large rocky elevation changes. There was some talk that the road getting into the place is a little tricky for large trailers due to the steep grade.

Can anyone comment into the trailer access with a little more detail? This is a long haul for me, so the toy hauler is coming with, or I'd likely pass. But I'd really like to race the new venue.

According to the landowners and people who have visited, the drive way is well maintained (gravel) and there is lots of field parking / camping space available for large RVs and trailers. They are used to hosting events and have had lots of large rigs on site. The property is on a mountain up from Calabogie but the road is also well maintained. You just need a vehicle that can climb a reasonable grade.

If it rains heavily the grass might be squishy, just like any other venue but this one is not any more difficult to access. I believe he has a tractor in a pinch.

Chris and Sheri are excited about hosting an OO event and are hoping for great weather and a good turnout!

The event flyer should be ready within a few weeks.

Cheers,
Jeremy
