Eastern Ontario Trail Blazers


Welcome to the Eastern Ontario Trail Blazers 4x4 Club

The Eastern Ontario Trail Blazers 4X4 Club (EOTB) is a family oriented, non-profit, incorporated off-roading club with a great deal to offer its members;

We travel Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley area, with some events in Quebec.

Our members drive all kinds of vehicles - Jeeps, Land Rovers, Nissans, Fords, Land Cruisers, and Suzukis. Our members come from Belleville, Kingston, Brockville, Ottawa, the Ottawa Valley, and Quebec. You will see wives, husbands, friends, kids and dogs around the camp site and on the trail. Come explore nature up close with the entire family.

We are neither extremists nor crazy. Our interests are off-roading in a technically precise way. You will almost never see us madly spin our tires as that is the best way to damage the vehicle and trail. We follow the "Tread Lightly" philosophy by off-roading responsibly, respecting the rights of others, avoiding sensitive areas and most of all doing our part by trying to leave the area better than we found it. Tread Lightly!
