If the (snow) shoe fits
We think there are a few activities that should be on the must-try list for every Canadian, and snowshoeing just happens to be one of them. Make this the winter you plan a Great Canadian Day Trip to try this fun and frosty sport for yourself. Take advantage of these special events and rental options to try before you buy.
Rent snowshoes at Mountsberg Conservation Area
during the park’s Winter at Mountsberg weekends and after your snowshoe you can take a ride on a horse-drawn sleigh, warm up beside a crackling bonfire and watch one of the twice-daily Birds of Prey demonstrations. Crawford Lake Conservation Area
is holding guided evening snowshoes (rentals are available) on Saturdays in January and February. Family hikes are held at 4 pm and adult hikes are held at 7 pm. After your guide leads you on a snowshoe hike through the beautiful landscape, the evening will end fireside with some tasty hot chocolate. Pre-registration required. Pinehurst Lake Conservation Area
, just outside Paris, and Terra Cotta Conservation Area
in Halton Hills both offer snowshoe rentals as well for exploring their networks of trails.
