Trail shared by Betty Anne Fequet

A good, sheltered run for the coldest days.

Betty Anne Fequet

Features -none-

This snowshoe trail is not generally used for summer running. This trail is for winter use only when snow covered.

Overview

This entirely treed circuit is within easy access to the chalet on blustery days.

Need to Know

There is ample parking and a fully serviced chalet.

Description

Start at the chalet by the snowshoe trail sign off Robin's Route ski trail to access Snowshoe Trail A1. Follow the entire A1 loop, then continue onto Snowshoe Trail A2. Turn onto Snowshoe Trail B2, which crosses over Robin's Route ski trail, continues behind the chalet, and then joins Snowshoe Trail B1. Follow B1 towards Jack Rabbit Loop, and find the C1 arrow towards the continuation of C1 across the Jack Rabbit Loop clearing.

Just into the spruce woods, C1 branches with a sign indicating bridges in opposite directions. Take the branch "to Katima Bridge." Snowshoe Trail C1 skirts the perimeter of Jack Rabbit Loop. Turn onto Snowshoe Trail C2 to complete a short loop now in sight to the chalet and then rejoin Snowshoe Trail C1 back to the chalet.

Flora & Fauna

Mostly black spruce. Jack Rabbit Loop and portions of adjacent C1 are areas that were previously burnt and there are thickets of willow, alders, and aspen.
