Sunday, February 2, 10 am - 12:30 pm - Nature Hike with Drew Monkman

Join Drew Monkman from the Peterborough Field Naturalists for a hike along the snowshoe trail to learn more about local wildlife and other winter nature phenomenon. Kawartha Nordic is co-hosting this event with the Peterborough Field Naturalists. We will be meeting at the Rental Trailer at 10 am.

Our leader, Drew Monkman, naturalist and author, will increase our appreciation of nature by pointing out details that often go unnoticed. We'll look for animal signs such as tracks, see what birds are about and learn how to identify some of the trees in this beautiful landscape. Snowshoes can be rented from the rental shop for $10.00. Dress warmly as there will be frequent stops to look at what we find. Bring binoculars if you have them!

Accessibility: Easy to moderate for people with good mobility

Fat Biking Sunday

21 Dec 2019

Fat biking: just a fad or here to stay? We are conducting a fat biking test this Sunday, December 22. The bikes will be ridden on closed trails and closely monitored to see what kind of impact they have on the trails. Stay tuned as we learn more! Want to join us? Meet at Woodfine chalet at 10:30am or Email or call the rental shop (705) 931-5672.

Update: The fat biking test day turned out to be quite fun.  When the temperature was below zero, tire tracks were not very noticeable on the snow, and seems to be a nice option when the trail conditions aren't great for skiing.  There is still a lot to discuss to make this sport work at the club (including insurance issues) so please stay tuned as we work it out!
