Snowdon Park Trails

Snowdon Park is a 450 acre property owned and maintained by the Township of Minden Hills with support from the Haliburton Highlands Field Naturalists. The Park was established in the early 1980’s and in 2003 the addition of the adjacent property greatly expanded the park. The park contains two large loops (Ross Rigney Trail and the Brenda Chambers Trail) with one connecting link between them. Many lookout points are stationed along the trail. A viewing platform near the trailhead is also wheelchair accessible. The trails are well maintained, flat terrain, and span through wetlands and upland forests.

Although most people visit Snowdon Park during the summer and fall there are things to be seen and enjoyed at all times of the year!

Even in the harsh winter months tracks of Moose, White- tailed Deer, Snowshoe Hares, Ruffed Grouse (etc.) can be seen in the snow. The trails provide an easy, relaxing winter outing for snowshoeing and cross- country skiing.  In the spring, Many migratory bird s arrive and on spring evenings mating calls of spring peepers, wood frogs, American Frog and grey tree frogs fill the air.

We encourage you to visit Snowdon all throughout the year to enjoy what the park has to offer in all seasons!
