Wostawea Trails (UNB Woodlot and Kingswood)

The Wostawea Trails have been groomed where possible, because of the minimum amount of snow pack, there are sections of trails that were not groomable, and areas where track could not be set. The Lian St entrance is pretty rough going, we need more snow here to allow for better access – use the Kingswood access behind the Lodge. Please check the blog site for updates: http://unbwoodlotski.blogspot.ca. Killarney Lake Trails have also been groomed, similarly, they have not been able to groom all the trails, and have not set track. Thank you for the groomers to maximize use of our current snow. Another good snowstorm, and the groomers should be able to finalize grooming and tracking.

Wostawea Jackets  - Order due by Friday January 15
