Looking for a day of winter fun? Head on over to the Mansfield Outdoor Centre, nestled in the hills of Mulmur Township on 300 acres of forest, fields and the Pine River.

Here you’ll find some of the best mountain and fat biking in Ontario and breath-taking views.  As well as biking there are trails for Cross-Country skiing and snowshoeing for beginner, intermediate and hard core. Don’t forget your skates, right in front of the main lodge you’ll find a beautiful rink for your loops, lutzes and axels. Don’t have all the gear, it’s okay for rent you can find; cross country skis, snowshoes and Fat bikes.

Head over to the new Pine River Café in the Main Lodge to warm up with delicious chilies and soups before your next loop around the trails.

After all that fresh air and exercise, chances are you’ll be too tired to cook. Drive 10 minutes south to Maple Grove Farm and stock up on delicious savory and sweet pies, and other prepared foods. This is also a great time to stock up on meat and pantry items. Try their honey mustard salad dressing – you will not be disappointed.
