Madawaska Nordic Trails
Madawaska Nordic Trail
|Trail Type||Unpaved trails|
Cross country ski trails in winter, hiking trails in summer; Madawaska Nordic offers 18 km. of easy hiking trails. These trails, which were at one time old logging roads, wind their way through a picturesque forest landscape with lots of gentle ups and downs to keep the outing visually interesting and lots of fun.
How to Get There:
The Madawaska Nordic Trails are located west of Calabogie near the Calabogie Peaks Ski Resort. To find the trailhead, travel 6 km west from the intersection of Highways 508 and 511 in Calabogie to Viewmount Drive. Turn right on Viewmount Drive and take the second right onto Crestview where you will find parking on Crestview at the trailhead.
From the trailhead, all hikers begin their outing on the Red Pine trail that takes them 1 km slowly uphill to where it intersects with the local ATV trail. At the Crossroads, hikers then have the choice of continuing on Red Pine or taking any of the other trails that branch off Red Pine.
Return distances to the trailhead are:
Red Pine – 6km
Snow Bunting – 6 km
Chickadee/Footloose – 5 km
Horsecollar/Chickadee – 3 km
Hemlock – 4 km
Crossroads – 2 km
