The dog friendly trails are accessed via Gilgan Pit Road (about 1.9 km south of the ski club entrance on Highway 35 – at the top of Hopper’s Hill). The trail starts at the parking lot – 1.3 km from the highway. There is ample parking and an outhouse is available at the start of the trail. Please take the time to acquaint yourself with the trail use guidelines posted there.
The main route (Summit Loop) is fairly gentle and is a good ski for all levels of expertise (even the four legged ones!). In the fall of 2017 it was expanded to 5 km in length so you can now go partway down the Home Run and it loops back to the Summit Loop just south of Aiden’s Cutoff. Here is a map: OSC extended DogTrailMap 2017-11
Dogs are also welcome on the Spud Road system of trails but they are not to be taken west of the Reid Roundabout trail junction (on the Cedar). You can now do an extended loop around the first half of the Reid Roundabout and then east to where it connects to the Larch. Here is the map: OSC Accessible Dog Trails 2017-11
Please always keep your dogs close to you when skiing on the Spud Road system as there is an active trapline in close proximity to the trail.
**Please take the time to pick up after your dog as much as possible – just look for the orange shovels hanging on the trees all along the trail**
**Day use fees are required to use this trail (if you do not have a full membership). Please pay at the wax cabin**
