With over 37 Km of trails, there is something for every outdoor enthusiast. Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, or fat-tire biking are great opportunities to get a workout and connect with nature during the winter! Once inside the lodge, you will find our environmental education center, bathrooms, grab-and-go snacks, seating, and rental equipment.
