Wilsondale Trails

The Wilsondale Trails are set with classic ski tracks and snowshoeing beside the tracks is perfect. Bring the family for a wonderful afternoon out in the fresh air right here in the village. Access to the trails is from the parking area bordering the western edge of the Cumberland Museum.

Excerpt from the LampLighter - Tales from the Trails - Nov. 2022
We enjoyed a busy summer and fall out on the Wilsondale trails. Our volunteers did a terrific job clearing fallen trees that blocked many of our paths following the big derecho storm. The City of Ottawa sprayed to help control the spreading wild parsnip that thrives on our trail system. It’s suggested to contact the city at 311 to report any serious safety concerns on the trails. Through the fall, we would welcome volunteers to assist with trail maintenance and preparations for winter.

We have some signposts and bridges in need of repair plus ongoing trail trimming and improvements. We also anticipate replacing the west side bridge with our volunteer group. Please reach out to us if you would like to participate. Ski Heritage East will continue with the track setting for free cross country skiing this winter season. Please check them out on social media. Our season generally runs from Jan-March. Just a reminder that the Wilsondale Trails are for non-motorized use and to please stay on the marked trails and off private property. Signs are installed to help show the way. Thanks so much and see you on the Trails!

"A nice easy trail that is dog friendly - off leash even! Perfect if you only have an hour or two. Multiple path options with a nice look out. Entrance is a little hard to find but you can find a detailed map online and the path is well posted and signed throughout the trail. Definitely one to check out!"
