A new way to hit the trail at Sir Sam’s

Enjoy 6km of dedicated hiking trail traversing classic Highlands terrain and offering spectacular views.

This trail is rated moderate and winds its way up to the top of the hill through hardwood forests and fields. Once at the top, take in the panoramic views over Eagle and Moose Lake.

Four interpretive signs along the route will provide some history of our namesake, Sir Sam Hughes; his summer estate, and what is now Sir Sam’s Inn and Waterspa; and the history of the ski hill started by the Bishop Family in 1965. It’s a great way to learn and celebrate the history of Sir Sam’s Ski & Ride while getting some exercise.

We recommend you bring a walking stick and due to the terrain, do not recommended this trail for small children. Dogs are welcome on hiking trails, provided they are kept on a leash at all times and cleaned up after. This will be strictly enforced!

To make the most of your trail time, we recommend you:

  • Wear sturdy, comfortable footwear
  • Bring a walking stick
  • Pack water
