Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing



Snowshoeing opportunities are available in the Northumberland County Forest, although there are no dedicated snowshoe trails. The best places to snowshoe are on the Woodland Trail and the Oak Ridges Trail. Snowshoeing is not allowed on the Beagle Club Road Cross-country Ski Trails. The Blue Hiking/Mountain Biking Trail is also available but would be only for people looking for the most difficult of trails.

Blue Single-Track Trail

The Blue Single-track trail is a narrow, windy trail with some steep hills. Snowshoers share this trail with hikers and adventurous mountain bikers. Because of the steep hills, this trail should be used by advanced snowshoers only.
