This is the groomed loop through the Nature Park and Forest Crown. Some additional areas in Forest crown may be groomed if the conditions permit.

Enjoy the trails this winter. Please be mindful of the conditions.

Snowshoers have a positive impact on the trails especially after recent snowfalls clearly demarcating the walker/snowshoe side from ski side. Please do not snowshoe on classic ski tracks.

It is appropriate to bike on packed trails whether groomed or not as long as trail integrity is not compromised. Tires wider than 3” are recommended

Cross Country Skiing is acceptable on all trails. On park roads, please set track to one side.

Running and walking is appropriate are as long as trail integrity is not compromised. If you are postholing, it’s good etiquette to turn around.
