Feb 6 (9M, 2w) by Craig Storey from South: Stadium
Trails Skied: Powerline, Horseman's Pass, Waterfall Trail, Morrall Loop, Haycock Mine Loop, #1 heading to North.. [0km], Glide Wax: Blue, Grip Wax: Violet
Quick report from Saturday afternoon. While the race course were meticulous all weekend, the secondaries are also in great shape.

I thought it worth mentioning that Waterfall, Morrall Loop and Haycock mine Loop and 1N are in fabulous shape right now. Worth the quick trip for a recovery ski before we get freezing rain later this week.

Perhaps they will even see a piston bulley when the trails team recovers!

About Skiing at Nakkertok..


Nakkertok has a network of about 75km of skating, classical and backcountry trails at two locations just north of Ottawa in the Gatineau Hills.


General Info: Driving Directions | Trail Maps | Trail Conditions | Grooming Activity Report.


Nakkertok South is the main attraction offering groomed skating and classic skiing, chalets, races and children's programming. There are lit trails for night skiing. Club membership, or a day-use fee required for skiing.


Nakkertok North trails are quite demanding, and only occasionally groomed (Fridays). They offer a refreshing backcountry wilderness experience for those with good skiing skills. The trails at Nakkertok North are almost always quiet. The annual Nakkerloppet event in February is a great opportunity to discover these trails by making the North to South crossing.
