Cross-Country Ski Trail
The Arundel Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Club (officially the Arundel Outdoor Club) is now managed by Loisirs Arundel. The Club was founded in 1978 and has been in continuous operation since then. The course is approximately twenty (20) kilometers long. It starts behind the Arundel United Church in the center of the village, crosses the Arundel Golf Course and goes to the Arundel Nature and Science Centre on the Crystal Falls Road.
The trails are used, maintained and groomed by members of Arundel Recreation. They are also used regularly by the children of Arundel School and users of the Arundel Nature and Science Centre.
Membership in Loisirs Arundel includes access to the trails. Membership fees cover the costs of maintaining the trails.
Those wishing to use the trails without a membership to Loisirs Arundel are invited to purchase a day ticket. Day tickets are available at the Provisions Arundel General Store located at 14 Village Street. Children under 18 years of age can ski for free.
A trail map is available behind the Arundel United Church and at the Provisions Arundel General Store.
