This trail provides a challenging ski through hardwood forests and along scenic ridges. The up hills are steep but the long down hills are worth the climb.
The trails that once accommodated a single snowmobile and tracksetter are now up to 6 meter width to allow both classic and skating techniques and the passage of large sophisticated snow-grooming equipment. Our clubhouse, Jackrabbit Lodge, and equipment garage have all been improved steadily over the years.
But with all these changes, many things remain constant at the North Bay Nordic Ski Club. The rugged hills of the escarpment north of Trout Lake remain as challenging and daunting as ever; the downhill runs are just as fast. And the great strength of the Club, its spirit of volunteerism, continues to drive the Club in all of its pursuits.

Directions: From the HWY 11/17 junction near Seymour Street, head northwest on HWY 11/17. Turn right onto Trout Lake Road for 8.5 km. Turn right onto Peninsula Road and left onto North Shore Road.
