Trail Report

July 12, 2021

**SUMMER IS HERE** Trails are open for biking, hiking and equestrian users. Exercise Extreme Caution due to the High Fire Danger Rating. Avoid smoking and campfires are absolutely forbidden. Report any fires to 1 800 663-5555 or on Cell *5555.

ACTIVE CONSTRUCTION ON HOLD! Construction on Phases 1 and 2 of the Lighting Project is currently on hold due to the high fire danger rating and very dry conditions. Watch out for sand piles along Ermine Frolic Hill and Arwen’s Dream. A huge thank you to the awesome crew and volunteers who have helped us out so far. We will be back on the project once conditions are favorable.

HORSE CAMPING IS ALSO ON HOLD FOR NOW.

Please go to the Weather and Webcams – Larch Hills Nordic Society (skilarchhills.ca) to see current temperatures and winds.

If you have anything to report, send me an email at trailreport@skilarchhills.ca

Snowshoe Trails

2021 March 16: All of our trails are open

Our snow shoe trails are “User Maintained.” Please carry garden clippers and/or a folding saw and help us keep our trails clear of anything that is impeding progress or may get in someone’s face.  Report anything you can not deal with to trailreport@skilarchhills.ca.

All trails appear to be very well used.  In term’s of “Pristine bogs”, Frodo’s Bog is a little further to walk to and well worth the effort. There are some trees that will need to be removed next Spring on Lucy and Stumpy, but a path has been cleared to get through.

Trail Maps are located at the beginning and end of our trails. A free downloadable PDF map ( for cell phones) is available on the Larch Hills Map Page here.

Our trails are not patrolled. If you are unable to return to the Chalet on your own, you may have a long wait for help. Be prepared to look after yourself (extra food, clothing, fire starter, and water).
