The club maintains 43 km of double track set and single track set cross-country ski trails that roll through different natural habitats common to the area including wetlands and a mix of hardwood and conifers. An 8 km network of snowshoe trails gives a good variety of winter activity.  All trails are well-signed with posted maps and colour-coded trail markers.
