Nordic Trails

Members and their guests (with a day ticket) are permitted to use the trail system. Recreational trails are not regularly maintained or patrolled and trail conditions are subject to changing weather and snow conditions.


Osler Bluff is a paradise for winter trekking. A network of almost 27 km of snowshoe trails wind their way through some of the Niagara Escarpment's most stunning environments. There are trails suitable for all ages, abilities and fitness levels.

A wide and flat system of trails behind the Oslerview Community are an easy introduction to snowshoeing; the North End trails climb through the forest to loop around the mid-mountain snowmaking reservoir; and a challenging 7.5 km climb and descent off the mountain takes the experienced and fit snowshoer on a tour of the entire property. Adventurous snowshoers can extend their hikes by joining the Bruce Trail, Pretty River Provincial Park or enjoy the managed conservation area to the south of the Club property.

Note: Snowshoe traffic is not permitted on alpine ski trails. This poses a hazard to both skiers and hikers. Please follow marked trails.

Cross Country Skiing

While the trails that ascend and descend the mountain are not suitable for cross country skiing, Nordic skiing is encouraged on the lower trail, also referred to as the "Fisher Trail", accessed from the snowmaking reservoir in the Oslerview Community. These multi-use flat trails are shared with snowshoers and hikers. Conditions permitting, these trails may be groomed to facilitate skiing.
