Almaguin Community Trails

South River

Description

The Almaguin Community Trails are a project led by community volunteers  in partnership with the Near North District School Board, Almaguin Secondary School and Discovery Routes.

The aim is to provide the community with a center for cross-country skiing both competition and leisure as well as other forms of recreation including snowshoeing, dog sledding, cross-country running and hiking. As of 2016, the trails network is comprised of 2km of regulation cross-country ski trails and 3km of narrower ski trails. An additional 3km of snowshoe and hiking trails are also open for use by the public. The ski trails are track-set by volunteers. Trail expansion and improvements are ongoing.

Almaguin Community Trails have hosted International Dog Sled and skijoring races.

The group has a Facebook page devoted to the trails with regular updates on the trail status throughout the winter months, and can be found here: Almaguin Community Ski Trails

An ongoing fundraising campaign helps the volunteer-driven effort to achieve this ambitious goal. Charitable receipts are issued for donations through Discovery Routes and Canada Helps: Click to Donate.
