With over 30 km’s of Cross County Ski Trails, and 10 km’s of snowshoeing / hiking trails, a 420 ft. Suspension Bridge of 10,000 sq. km views of Georgian Bay The Blue Mountains is a place to visit all year round.
Just minutes away from the downhill Ski Resort and Village – Blue Mountain, Collingwood. Take note of my Strava map at the end of this blog to see the geographic relation between the two.
Scenic Caves Nature Adventures offers snowshoe rentals and cross country ski rentals. We hiked almost 5 km’s and what a workout it was! We didn’t have snowshoes, so just hiked in our Keen hiking boots and they worked just as well.
Hiking poles are recommended as you burn more calories, get an upper body workout, and your hands tend not to swell. They also offer that extra support for trekking around logs or boulders.
Scenic Caves Nature Adventures do provide a map at the beginning, but it’s really not needed as there is signage around every corner, and maps at every intersection for hikers and skiers. Beginner to Advanced trails are also offered for both snowshoeing and cross county skiers.
They have a chalet with washrooms, a change area and fireplace. But they also have a fire-pit outside to enjoy S’Mores and Spider Dogs.
The Scenic Caves Trails and Caverns are closed during the winter months, so we’ll be going back in the fall for this adventure. The colors should be spectacular! Maybe we’ll even try Zip Lining.
…never stop exploring
