Scenic Caves Nordic Centre
Set within one of Canada’s sixteen UNESCO biosphere reserves, lies Scenic Caves Nordic Centre - a spectacular winter playground. With our unique mountaintop location, the Nordic Centre is nestled in 370 unspoiled acres of the Niagara Escarpment. Our location provides the perfect elevation for reliable snow conditions and consistent temperatures, all season long. Glide along our 27km trail network by cross country ski, or hike by snowshoe on 12km of trails. Our trails are professionally groomed and track set daily and include access to Southern Ontario's longest Suspension Footbridge!
Many native species call our 200 year old forest home and await your arrival. A wide variety of birds including winter owls, deer, rabbits and other wildlife can be seen during any given winter visit.
