RANKIN SKI TRAILS ARE PERMANENTLY CLOSED
There is no alternative access. Please try one of our other cross-country ski trails.
Thank you to the landowners and club members who made this a successful trail for so many years. A special thanks to Richard Bonert, our dedicated Rankin trail captain.
The Rankin Ski Trail is located at Red Bay on the Bruce Peninsula. It offers 16.1 kilometers of well-groomed cross-country skiing.
The cross-country ski trails run through wind-sheltered, rolling woodlands. The trails are ideal for the novice skier, but there are some more difficult hills on the north end.
Trails are groomed and trackset twice a week, with extra grooming after really big snowfalls.
