Cross-Country Skiing

The Northumberland Forest offers a unique woodland cross-county ski experience with non-mechanically groomed trails.

We have seven well-marked cross-country ski trail loops that range from our 1.6 km long Kiddie Loop to our 13.3 km long Green “A” loop. As we are on the Oak Ridges Moraine, most trails are hilly and challenging. Benches are located throughout the trails for resting.

  • Parking for the cross-country ski trails is located on Beagle Club Road, off County Road 45. Facilities are minimal with an outhouse at the trailhead.
  • From December 1 to March 31, trails west of Beagle Club Road are for cross-country skiing only. During that period, other non-motorized users (hiking, snowshoeing, horseback riding, biking) are asked to use the Woodland Trails.
  • Dogs are not allowed on the cross-country ski trails during the winter months.
