After a mild Fall and Christmas, the snow and cold weather has arrived. This means it's time to get outside, explore the trails and go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.
Where are the trails? While the following is not intended to include every publicly accessible location, there are three that I can note.
The first is Silent Lake Provincial Park. While not technically within Hastings County's borders, it's just a few minutes west of Faraday Township and the Town of Bancroft on Provincial Highway 28. If you are willing and have lots of time, one of the loops is 19KM long. When finished head back into Hastings County and stop somewhere for hot chocolate and some lunch or dinner.
Another location is further south in Limerick Township which is the McGeachie Conservation Area. McGeachie is home to 358 acres of land with many new and well maintained walking trails through the property. How about put on your skis and explore over snow!
How about spend a weekend or a couple of days skiing? There are many accommodators across our County awaiting your reservation.
If you have a location that you would like me to add to this post, or to a future one, please let me know.
See you out on the trails!
