This is a well-maintained XC ski park that can be used for hiking and biking in Summer/Fall. It is comprised mostly of wide paths with a few new single pathways in the mostly wooded property. Trail configuration is stacked loops with hikes from as short as you like to possibly 20+km. There is ample parking at the clubhouse next to the Souris Line Road. There are a few damp areas with many intertwining loops and offshoots. There are some quiet glades with large trees in much of the slightly rolling terrain. A stream runs through with a several sturdy bridges. For an extra long trek, you could link into the Townshend Woodlot, a bit to the north which would include some Confederation Trail to form a large loop. GPS recommended if you plan a longer hike.
