The SS trail is designed to be challenging yet not intimidating. It takes advantage of the beautiful scenery afforded by the Frontenac Arch that the Triangle Ski Club is fortunate to be located on.  Breathtaking views await those willing to make the trek to the various summits of the snowshoe trail. These include views of Graham Lake & Deer Lake (Long Beaver Dam) as well as meandering creeks and ice formations.





 







The SS trail network begins and ends at the parking lot. The complete network is approximately 6 km in length comprised of 3 loops. The Long Loop is 3km and takes ~ 45 minutes to complete. It includes a view of Graham Lake with approximately 130 metres of vertical ascent.

 


The Long Beaver Dam Loop adds another 1 km and is quite challenging with a technical ascent up rock scrabble and affords a breath taking view 60 feet above the creek below! (Long Beaver Dam Lookout- Trail Director’s personal favourite).  The LBD Lookout is also accessible from the Long Loop for those looking for a less arduous route. The Short Loop is a family friendly loop that is a 2 km trail that requires ~30 minutes to complete. It affords picturesque views of the ski trails below and parallels a bubbling brook. There are a number of spots to rest and enjoy the view so bring a warm beverage and make it a day of exploring.

 



Initial response from snowshoe enthusiasts has been very favourable.  They particularly enjoyed Graham Lake Lookout and Bob’s Brink overlooking Ironwood.   They said the trail offered a variety of terrain and was a good workout.
