Dozens of Ontario snowmobilers make a stop in the Chaleur Region

Local snowmobilers are likely to notice some extra traffic on the trails this weekend.

Several snowmobilers from Ontario's 'Northern Odyssey' group are in the region enjoying its extensive trail system as they try to raise money for children's charities back home.

Nepisiguit Snowmobile Club's Mark Hannan says three tractor trailers carrying an estimated 75 snowmobiles arrived in Bathurst earlier this week.

The group visited the region last year and Hannan says it's the first time they visit an area twice.

Hannan says the Chaleur Region has one of the best networks of snowmobile trails in the world and that the the visit will be good for the local economy.
