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.

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 than 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 'Current Trail Conditions' below for details regarding trail grooming.

Please note that dogs are not permitted on our ski trails

Pet Friendly

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.
