February 24 to 26, 2017
Stay at the rustic Wolf Den Bunkhouse ‘n Cabins close to the entrance of Algonquin Park from Friday evening until Sunday. The hostel is approximately a three hour drive north of Toronto, on Highways 400, 11, and 60. The closest major urban centre is Huntsville on Hwy 60. Visit www.wolfdenbunkhouse.com for more information about the Hostel.
Enjoy the company of fellow enthusiasts while reveling in and celebrating the end of the winter season. Provided will be Friday night food and snacks, two pancake breakfasts, and supplies for two sandwich style lunches. Saturday evening will be a pot luck (group) dinner.
We have the entire hostel booked for the weekend. There are three buildings. The Main Lodge building has washrooms, showers, cooking, and eating facilities as well as bedrooms down stairs. There are two split winterized cabins (Loon and Bear) with 3 beds in each section.
You can choose a bed for yourself and your friends when signing up. View the room and bed layout on the graphic below. Updating the bed layout is a manual process. We will try to keep this graphic up to date.
Algonquin Park has three trail networks specifically designed and reserved for cross-country or Nordic skiing. Two trails are packed and groomed on a regular basis and there is one wilderness ski trail, where no grooming takes place:
● Minnesing Wilderness Ski Trail (not groomed)
Arrowhead Provincial Park is also close by as is the Leslie Frost Centre Trails.
For snowshoeing in Algonquin Park, any of the Hwy 60 corridor hiking trails can be used in winter. The 5km Booth Rock trail becomes 7km in winter as the road is not ploughed and the 10km Centennial Trail becomes 14km in winter.
The cost is $95 for members and $105 for non-members. Please register online. For mail in registrations and for more information, download the sign up sheet:
