The Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST) invites area residents and families to come out to the cross-country ski and snowshoe trails at the Summerstown Forest on Family Day, Monday, February 20, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. 

“Last year’s event, which attracted more than 200 participants was a great success,” says Paul Couture, FOTST President. “Many families came out to the trails for the first time to try out cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.”

Once again, the group will organize special activities as their way of supporting today’s busy families. There will be no cost to participate in any of the activities.

In addition to coming out to explore the 18 km of cross-country ski trails and 9 km of snowshoe trails, the following special activities will be offered: fun snowshoe races for kids, guided tours, free hot dogs, marshmallows, and hot chocolate. Also, families will be able to rent ski and snowshoe equipment free of charge throughout the day.

The trails are situated on Summerstown Road, 1.6 km north of exit 804 of the 401.
