Blueberry Trail Wasaga Beach












































Hiking this morning in the extra-crisp Spring air was exhilarating and relaxing.  The stillness of the forest canopy and the mess of Winter's fury lay strewn on the landscape floor.  Life was evident and birds greeted me. The sun kissed my face and my heart skipped a beat. 

Wasaga Beach offers some of the most exciting nordic ski terrain in Central Ontario with 30 kilometres of trails. Expert skiers are challenged on the groomed and track set "High Dunes Trail", or you may choose a more leisurely ski on the "Blueberry Trail".

The Wasaga Nordic Centre offers modern equipment rentals, light refreshments, warm-up shelter and outback ski shelters to warm up a lunch on a crisp winters day. A quiet skier will be rewarded with wildlife viewing as white-tailed deer and winter birds are abundant. Call the Trail Centre at (705)429-0943 for trail conditions, rental and ski rates and general winter program information.


In the winter, the Dunes area of Wasaga Beach Provincial Park provides a spectacular 800 hectare backdrop to 30 kilometres of cross-country ski trails. You will ski through a mixed forest of oaks and towering pines and see a variety of birds and mammals on groomed and track set trails. We also offer an 8 kilometre skating trail.
Located just off Blueberry Trail near the O.P.P. station in Wasaga Beach, the Nordic Centre is the focal point of the cross-country ski area. The Centre is equipped with washrooms, a snack bar offering light snacks and beverages and a fireplace. Modern ski and snowshoe equipment is available to rent, along with ski wax and accessories.
