Close to Huntsville, the groomed Fen Lake Ski Trail (15km) travels through hardwood bush, typical of Algonquins west side with Sugar Maple, Yellow Birch, beech and hemlock being the most prominent species. You will almost certainly see the tracks of Moose on your outing, deep holes in the snow which occasionally pose problems for our cross country ski trail groomers.

Overall, Fen Lake Ski Trail is the 36th most popular cross country ski area of all 49 Nordic ski destinations in Ontario. Several of the better cross country ski trails are nearby Fen Lake Ski Trail including Minnesing Wilderness Ski Trail, Leaf Lake Ski Trail and Arrowhead Provincial Park.
