Cross Country Ski at Moose Lake Trail

We are planning on skiing the Moose Lake Trail. It is an 11 km loop, but it is also possible to just ski in as far as the warming shelter, which is 3.2 km from the trailhead.

Please contact Robert at 204 759 2412 for information or to let us know you are coming.

On Sunday March 02, 2024, Brian Ogilvie will be hosting a day hike in the Spruce
Wood Refuge which is located off the old highway to Carberry with the turn off adjacent to the Camp Hughes Wayside Rest area on PTH#1 east of Brandon.

We will meet at the Petro Canada gas station parking lot which is at the 1st. Street and Trans Canada highway junction in the morning.  We can carpool from there, i.e. I have room for 4 others.  You will need some lunch and water to drink and depending on conditions at the time snowshoes may be helpful.  As the date gets closer, I will be out to that area and will let everyone know what the conditions are like.  We will be hiking for the most part along trails that are usually well travelled and packed down by ORVs so usually it is easy going.

Option #1.  We will hike south to Sewell Lake (approx. 4 km.) where we will make a fire and enjoy our lunches so bring something that can be warmed up on the fire if that appeals to you.  Once ready we will hike back to the starting point.

Option #2.  Depending on the conditions and will of the group, I will be ready to add an element of “Wilderness” to this hike, after all that is in the name of our club!  I have a route planned out that will see us go off trail and navigate to the south edge of Round Lake then cross country along a compass bearing to a small unnamed lake, across that lake and again cross country back to the main trail, then south to Sewell Lake.  We would have a fire and lunch and return back to the start along the main trail.  The total length of trail we will be bushwacking will be approx. 700m.  For those that are familiar with map and compass or GPS navigation this will be an opportunity to use your skills.

Bicycle the Mesabi Trail in Minnesota

The Mesabi Trail is a 265 km paved trail that cuts through forests, past lakes, creeks and ponds, and connects 28 communities running east from Grand Rapids Mn. It is not a rail trail, so can be hilly in sections.

Check out the trail: https://mesabitrail.com/

We plan to have base camp and ride different sections of the trail each day, returning to the base each night, so we don’t need to carry a lot of luggage. Also, people can choose to ride shorter or longer distances each day.

Accommodations can include camping, cabins, or hotels. I’m waiting for information about a resort on the shores of a lake near Grand Rapids that has camping as well as three cabins.

For more information and to indicate an interest, contact Judy Bartel—204-720-7892 or
