Sunday, March 26th, 2023 - Scenic Caves in Collingwood

Scenic Caves is on the highest point of the Niagara Escarpment, approximately 10 km west of Collingwood. The trails range from beginner to intermediate. The area offers beautiful scenery, two lookouts over Georgian Bay and the Osler Valley.

There are 27 km of combined classic and skate skiing trails, along with 10 km of snowshoe trails.  There is a bit of snow in the forecast later this week so that should hopefully help with some of the existing thin spots and make for decent trail conditions.

There are ski rentals, waxing facilities, and a small store for ski gear. 

Cabin: As part of your trail pass fee, Trakkers has the use of a separate building which is a 2-level log cabin with heated washrooms next door.  Trakkers will have access to these heated washrooms as well as the cabin basement for changing and storing your bags for the day.  The cabin is heated by a wood stove.  Trakkers members can use the cabin as a warming station and to eat your lunch.  Bring your own lunch and snacks or the main building will have soup and chilli for sale.  The main building eating area is quite small and it is a 5 minute walk to the cabin.

Trail Pass: $35 includes the use of the cabin for Trakker’s members and guests only.

Rentals (plus HST)

Classic  $29.50

Skate  $44

Snowshoe $22

Bus departure point location

This is a 9 am departure from Indian Road.  

The pick- up location is on Indian Road, just north of Bloor Street West, underneath the subway overpass, by the entrance of the Keele subway station parking lot.  The buses leave at 9:00 am sharp and leave at 4:30 pm returning to Toronto shortly after 6:30 pm. There is plenty of free parking on Sundays at the Keele subway parking lot.

Register Early: This is a popular destination and event.  Please register early to avoid disappointment.  Trakkers has strict cancellation policies with its bus companies.  If you plan to ski, please don’t wait until the Thursday 9 p.m. cut-off to register as the club volunteer executive has to make decisions early in the week on the number of buses to run.
