Winter in Calabogie

Calabogie has a little bit of everything for the outdoor adventurer. It is located 60 minutes west of Ottawa, Canada’s capital. Different seasons make for different adventures, and this is a look at what a winter in Calabogie can look like.

Iceclimbing

Just behind Calabogie Peaks is the Manitou Trail which is right after the trail to Eagles Rest. In the winter, ice is formed thanks to ground water and mother nature.There are 6 different sections with single pitch climbs that range in difficulty. Each winter is different.

Snowshoeing

There are many trails for snowshoeing in Calabogie but one of my favourites is Eagles Rest. Eagles rest is located 5 minutes behind Calabogie Peaks. There are many lakes located within 15 minutes of Calabogie that you can snowshoe to.

Cross Country Skiing

I love cross country skiing. I really do. And there are so many places to ski around here. There are many options depending on the type of xc ski you are interested in but some are the K&P and the Madawaska nordic ski trails.

Fourwheeling and Fishing

There is a never ending amount of this around here. There are hundreds of miles of fourwheeling trails all leading to some sort of body of water. Lakes and rivers outline these trails, most of them stocked with fish.

Hockey/Skating

The Calabogie Community Center has a big beautiful well kept arena with snacks and hot beverages available! We try to get out at least once a week throughout the winter.

These are just some of the activities to do in Calabogie and we tend to do them on a regular basis. It is a beautiful area that should be explored more often.
