X-Country Skiing & Snow shoeing
(Christmas until March break, weather permitting!)

Along the Wolf's Loop Along the Energizer Loop

Along the trails at MooseWoods!
Trail grades:
Three looped trails are groomed for x-country skiing (skating & classical):
Rolley Polley (3.8 km), Energizer (6.0 km) and Wolf's Loop (12.0km).
Two snowshoe trails, separate from the ski loops, allow you to take a ramble through the forest.

For those people who enjoy bushwacking, an additional 3.3 km of new backcountry ski trails have been added (no track set).

Located on 1700 acres of rolling wooded terrain, our 22 km of wide groomed trails are suitable for skate- and classic-skiers (track-set) alike.  Beginner as well as advanced skiers will enjoy the peaceful scenery of MooseWoods, which has been known to be disturbed only by animals such as Moose, Deer and Foxes who find that groomed trails make better walking than the deep snow.

A heated warm-up cabin at the trail head allows you to change and enjoy your lunch in comfort.  Shelters with wood stoves are located along the Energizer and Wolf's loop for your convenience.

Pets are not allowed on the trails during the winter season!

Trail grades:
Primarily double track "ski" trails with an increasing amount of technical single track including some extreme technical trails.

MooseWoods offers 1700 acres of hilly wooded terrain in the Haliburton Highlands area of Ontario.  Our trails provide some good beginner double track, but the main draw is some of the newer single track cut by the owners and local riders.  Trails like the Creek Run, the Big Easy, Rocky Path, and Hemlock trail offer riders some of the best technical single track to be found in Ontario.

In terms of technical riding however our short but extreme trail called The Ridge will challenge even the most advanced riders.  As the name suggests, the trail follows the edge of a rocky, wooded ridge with short steep climbs, extreme drop-offs, and West coast style trail design.
MooseWoods is one of the few places that offers these kinds of trails in Ontario.

Pets are allowed on the trails in the summer season, but must be leashed at all times!
