Majestic Beauty, Endless Trails

The snowmobile trails seem to be everywhere and with all the impressive woods and snow-covered lakes and rivers; one can only imagine the beauty just beyond the highway. These snow adorned trails make for some pretty fantastic sledding in Frontenac County.

Winter Has Wings

Wolfe Island is a melting pot of habitats that invite hundreds of species of birds to come and spend their days gazing upon the stunning scenery. You won’t have a problem spotting some of the larger birds that stick to the island in the winter months including owls, harriers and hawks. Our challenge to you? Spot as many as possible while you scour the snowy fields and dense trees.

Shopping At Trousdale’s General Store

“Ever-changing and never changing” is the motto Trousdale General Store lives by. Step into a building that has been standing since 1836 and has been owned by a member of the Trousdale family ever since!

Walking through the door at Trousdale’s in Sydenham is like stepping back in time. The wooden floor creaks in just the right way, the long century-old counters still greet customers and there’s even a spool of string still hanging from the tin ceiling, used for wrapping brown paper parcels long before plastic bags existed.

Not only is Trousdale’s known as the nation’s oldest general store – but what makes it remarkable all these years later is that it has kept safe a treasure trove of history. From the old brass crank cash register to a collection of yardsticks which now adorn the door to the old meat cooler, it’s almost a social museum nearing two centuries old.

The Great North

Enjoy a weekend of wintry solitude and camp out at Frontenac Park. Book your backcountry camping trip on the Ontario Parks website or contact the Friends of Frontenac Park. Set foot on the snowy trails as you travel to your campsite for a unique and exciting wintery experience.

Getting outdoors during the winter is not only healthy, but a great opportunity to turn the dreary season into a collection of positive memories.
