Almaguin Community Trails

South River


The Almaguin Community Trails project is a community effort carried out entirely by volunteers. The group has a Facebook page devoted to the trails with regular updates on the trail status, and can be found here: Almaguin Community Ski Trails

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, 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 group was able to purchase a groomer, a container to house the groomer, a track setter, and grooming aids.

The next step will be to extend the regulation size ski trail to 7km and develop another 12km of trail. A fundraising campaign has been initiated to help the volunteer-driven committee to achieve this ambitious goal. Click on the donation button if you would like to help build and improve the trails.


The volunteer group has joined the Discovery Routes trails system. Through the partnership, a legal agreement has been signed with the Near North District School Board.

The vast network of trails we celebrate exist on the traditional lands and waterways of the Anishinaabe people within the territory protected by the Robinson Huron Treaty of 1850 and Williams Treaties of 1923.
