Lauren and I always spend Christmas Eve dinner with her father and his family. It is the starting point for our winter trip around Lake Ontario for family visits. We have stops in Toronto for brunch and Niagara for dinner on Christmas day.
We both had the day off this year so we did some snowshoeing in the Durham Regional Forest north of Whitby. It was a nice little trek to prepare us for the Christmas eve feast.
The main trail is a well marked double track walking/skiing path. It just helps if you take some time to read the posted maps correctly. There are some interesting side trails you can take as well but you’ll have to crouch and bend your way through evergreens loaded with snow drooping all around you. The main path is very well maintained though and you’ll have no problems there.
