Winter Hiking

Put on your snow gear and take a hike through the ancient parabolic sand dunes and snowy pine trees, along the Ganaraska Trail. This winter hike offers you breathtaking views of the Nottawasaga River hidden below the valley. It begins at Wasaga Beach Provincial Park and will lead you through McIntyre Creek and down long country roads to Smithdale, connecting to the Mad River Trail. This is a simple hike that’s suitable for those looking for a more leisurely stroll and to relish in a dramatic ice sculpted landscape of the longest freshwater beach.

Skiing, Snowshoeing & Snowboarding

Visit some of the most exciting Nordic Ski Terrains in Central Ontario at the Wasaga Beach Provincial Park. The hills are perfect for anyone from beginner skiers to expert skiers. Choose from the challenging High Dunes Trail or the more leisurely Blueberry Trail and enjoy some of the finest cross country and downhill skiing adventures! If you’re not much of a skier then go snowshoeing on Wasaga’s new 10km trail system. Skiers and snowshoers will enjoy the trail even more with cool views of wildlife such as the white-tailed deer and stunning winter birds.
