The 6 km Blue Trail forms a portion of the Ganaraska Forest's extensive network of crosscountry ski trails, which have also been adapted for mountain biking, hiking, crosscountry running and equestrian use during the summer months.
Primarily a hard packed sand tread through undulating terrain, the trail meanders through beautiful hardwood forests and pine plantations. Users should be cautious of the plentiful poison ivy along the edges of the trail.

The Ganaraska Forest is owned and managed by the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority. In 1998 a management plan was completed for the Ganaraska Forest that will provide direction in the management of the Forest for the next 20 years.
A number of objectives are identified in the plan, including the conservation and protection of the headwaters of the Ganaraska River, the protection of heritage resources in the Forest, the maintenance of wildlife habitat and the provision for outdoor recreation and education.
