Larose Forest Cross-County Ski Trail
The trails of the Larose Forest are ideal for a pleasant day of cross-country skiing. They are wooded throughout, and well-signed. The system is composed of a series of three connected trails, the ones on the end a loop and the middle section a connective corridor. There are few hills, so those looking for that kind of a challenge might need to go elsewhere.
The paths are open to other uses throughout the year, but the low-lying land is extremely boggy and the path is frequently underwater for substantial stretches. ATV and other motorized use in the area is prohibited. Amenities such as grocery stores and restaurants may be found in the neighbouring communities of Limoges and Bourget.
The Larose Forest offers approximately 18 km of cross-country ski trails. The trails start at the Larose Forest access area called The Brook (south of Bourget, on County Road 8 or Champlain Street) and extend to the Indian Creek Road in Cheney (south of Regional Road 26 or Russell Road).
Maps are available at the Rockland City Hall, 1560 Laurier Street. Information: (613) 446-6022 ext. 2237
