Only one area in the Park is suitable for tobogganing; the Patterson hill. This hill is located behind the Patterson shelter 2 km from the Pijeboogwek parking lot. Visitors who choose to walk to the hill will have to follow the ski trail.

In order to keep our X-Country Ski trails in the best condition possible, walkers are asked to walk alongside the trail and not on the tracks and to give way to skiers.
