Snowmobiling

Winter Hiking
Wind through a winter wonderland of ancient parabolic sand dunes and snow-capped pines along the Ganaraska Trail. Offering stunning views of the Nottawasaga River deep below in the valley, a winter hike along the trails will not disappoint! From Wasaga Beach Provincial Park, the trail meanders through the valley of the McIntyre Creek and passes along quiet country roads to Smithdale, east of Glen Huron, where it connects with the Mad River trail section. The Wasaga Beach section is fairly easy to use with a few hills, making it great for novices and those out for a more leisurely stroll.

The longest freshwater beach in the world transforms to a dramatic ice sculpted landscape in the winter. Follow the Shore Lane Trail along the waterfront for spectacular views of the ice formations as the water and ice crash upon the shore. For safety’s sake, do not climb on the ice formations as they are not stable, giving way at any moment.

Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing
Wasaga Beach Provincial Park offers some of the most exciting Nordic ski terrains in Central Ontario with over 30 kilometers of groomed trails. Expert skiers can challenge themselves on the High Dunes Trail while beginner skiers can choose the more leisurely Blueberry Trail.

In addition to Nordic skiing, snowshoeing is also available with a recently updated 10 km trail system.

The Wasaga Nordic & Trail Centre offers modern equipment rentals, light refreshments, with a warm-up, and outback ski shelters to warm up a lunch on a crisp winter day. Quiet skiers/snowshoers will be rewarded with wildlife viewing as white-tailed deer and winter birds are abundant.
