If you have any trail information or comments that you would like to share, please email them to our trails coordinator

Since 2006 Kanata Nordic has had an agreement with the City of Ottawa and the YMCA-YWCA to groom trails with limited access to YMCA facilities at Riverfront Park located at Sixth Line Road in Kanata North (See Google map). These trails (as shown on the map updated 19-Jan-2008) are accessed from the Y-Outdoor Centre parking lot located at 1620 Sixth Line Road in Kanata North.

Additionally, in cooperation with the National Capital Commission, the City of Ottawa, and the Ottawa Municipal Campground Authority the club has trackset approximately 25 kilometers of trails (as shown on the aerial photo map) on the western Greenbelt in the City of Ottawa (pdf of an aerial photo). Trails are accessible from parking lot P4 on Timm Drive, and from parking lot P3 on Corkstown Road.

The Clubs mandate is to promote cross country skiing for its members and the general public, therfore, trails are open for everyone to enjoy. All we ask in return is that you say a friendly ‘hello’ and exchange a smile with anyone you meet on the trails.
