Welcome to the 2013/14 Cross Country Ski Season

The Haliburton Nordic Trail Association has developed and maintains over 70 km of well groomed cross country ski trails throughout Haliburton County. We are a not-for-profit association run 100% by volunteers. Without these volunteers and the countless hours they commit we would have no trails at all and would have to drive elsewhere to ski.

Hundreds of hours are spent each summer repairing and improving trails, replacing culverts and wash outs, filling in with gravel and clearing brush.

Each winter a number of volunteers are out there grooming the trails no matter what the weather conditions so that skiers have the best groomed trails. We are noted for having some of the best trails in the province not only because of the grooming levels but for the variety as well. Volunteers created these excellent trails that attract people from other communities because of their excellence.

These volunteers make all of this happen with their only reward being, knowing they have done a superb job for both the community and cross country skiing in general. And for this we are eternally grateful.
