Red Loop Trail
The Pembroke Cross-country Ski Club maintains the Forest Lea Cross-country Ski Trails in the winter. There are 19 km of skating trails and 14 km of classical trails suitable for all abilities. The trail layout is based on a "stacked loop concept" consisting of 4 trail segments. These segments are identified by coloured trail markers.
The stacked loop arrangement provides the skier with a variety of travel distances and terrain conditions. By travelling the outermost loop, the trails pass through a wide variety of terrain and vegetation cover for a total distance of 11.1 km. Several of the trails are set for both classical and skate skiing. During the winter season the trails are for the strict use of cross-country skiing. The trails are on Crown land and are accessible for biking and hiking during the other seasons of the year.
The Red loop travels a distance of 7 km. This trail is designed for the experienced skier, with a number of quick downhill runs and several long uphill climbs. This trail will not only test the skier's ability but also his or her endurance.
