Cross Country Ski Trails
During the winter the City of North Battleford grooms trails in four areas for Cross Country enthusiasts.
Centennial Park: Located behind the Civic Centre, several kilometers of groomed trails can be found here. The area is fairly wide open. There is adequate light for the night skier.
Holy Family School Park: A short trail designed for use by local residents. A very easy flat trail for beginners.
Finlayson Island: Located on the old Battleford highway. Trails are groomed on both sides of the island. Trails are well protected from wind through wooded areas, providing excellent skiing. Trails are looped, so shorter routes are available. Hiking is also popular on the island in fall, spring and summer.
North Shore Trail: Located along the North Shore of the river, access is from Poundmaker Trail, near the pedestrian bridge leading to Finlayson Island. The trail is a 5.5 km loop in a wooded area and is enjoyed by all levels of skiers. The trail runs along the northern shores of the North Saskatchewan River to two kilometres beyond the F.E. Holliday Water Treatment Plant heading east.
