From a stream bed to the Ridge, through boreal forest and frozen swamp, these trails will provide not only a picturesque and unique perspective on the Nordic setting, but a potentially invigorating tramp to challenge your stamina as well. Following a well-marked trail with a variety of options, you can design an experience to match your interests and ability. The North Bay Nordic Clubhouse is at your disposal from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm daily during the season to provide warmth, washrooms, and a snack bar with luncheon specials.
