Trails to Walk, Bike or Ski
Explore over 25km of trails in all four seasons!
Hiking and Snowshoeing Trails
Explore both woodland & wetland trails, featuring the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence forest region and a provincially significant wetland (cattail marsh). The majority of our trails are hard packed and suitable for a variety of assistive devices, strollers and wagons.
In addition to all of our regular hiking trails the Graham McDonald Snowshoe Trail is available exclusively in the winter months and is perfect for snowshoers. Ttraditional and modern style snowshoe rentals are available, please see our rentals page for more information. Guests are also welcome to bring their own snowshoes.
Ski and Bike Trails
The Upper Red Trail, Molehill Loop and Forget Loop are used as biking/hiking trails. These trails are for more experienced riders that are interested in a mountain biking experience consisting of some sandy areas, root covered trails, and some steep hills. If you are looking for a more tranquil touring biking experience then the Tay Shore Trail (paved 'rail trail') is the trail for you and it is less than a 5 minute bike ride from our parking lot.
We groom our ski trails in the classical style. Frequency of grooming is dependant on Mother Nature! Please refer to our current trail conditions page for details regarding trail grooming and status.Cross country ski package rentals are available including boots, poles, and skis, please see our rentals page for more information. Guests are also welcome to bring their own cross country skis.
Please note that dogs are not permitted on our ski trails.
The Wye Marsh is pet friendly and welcomes pets to the marsh on leashes. We ask that pets do not enter the Birds of Prey area or walk along our ski trails. Please stoop and scoop - we provide a bin for your pet's waste on the back patio of our visitor centre.
