Why are your trails closed during the hunting season?2021-01-19T22:07:07+00:00

Can I snowshoe and cross-country ski on your trails?2021-01-19T22:06:59+00:00

Yes, our trails are very beautiful in winter. Note that the trails are not groomed. The first one who passes makes the trail!

If you practice snowshoeing, please walk on the sides of the trails so as not to destroy the tracks of the cross-country skis.

Are your parking lots accessible in winter?2021-01-19T22:06:55+00:00

You must therefore park safely at the intersection of West Hill and Fullerton roads and reach our trails on snowshoes or skis.
