Mansfield Outdoor Centre is one of the better spots to ski in the area.

Machine-groomed with many services, it’s a popular place. Most of the seven loops are for seasoned Nordic skiers.

Beginners have their own track that avoids the hills. A 10 km skate-only trail will please many who need a work out.

Basically you start at the bottom of the hill where the buildings are and ski up gradually to the top where it plateaus and most of the ski tracks are.

At the end of the loop you are rewarded with a pleasant ski down.

The two beginner loops avoid the hill and head out along an access road and out into the field area. These are not as pretty a tour but easy for learners.

Snowshoeing is welcome and now they have 15 km of marked snowshoe trails which run parallel to the blue and green ski trails. Be advised not to stomp on the ski tracks please.

North beyond the loops is Dufferin Forest which is large and offers endless trekking if you want to bushwhack.

Not always open, can be closed if there is not a lot of snow. Call first or check website. During the week it hosts school groups.
