Definitely a high caliber of skier on these trails.... but friendly... definitely the least experienced skiers we ran into... great learning space and beautifully groomed trails.... signage was slightly confusing (as compared to scenic caves) but the loops were well thought out and beautiful.

We recently visited Highlands Nordic for an afternoon of cross country skiing. The trails were groomed, the snow conditions were great and with a bit of light snow, it made for an enjoyable afternoon of cross country skiing!

Not the ideal conditions but that's hardly the centre's fault. The trails are well laid out. What stood out however: I have no idea how a rental centre can rent out ultra narrow, wax, skating skis to a novice. Would it not be safer to...More

Highlands hosted the 2015 OFSSA X-C meet. The course was the best X-C course I have seen in years. If the course is this great in the fall the winter skiing must be the best. There are plenty of hills and flat trails.
