Welcome to Georgian Nordic Outdoor Activity Centre (GNOAC)

Nestled among acres of old-growth forest on the rugged Canadian Shield, the volunteer-run GNOAC offers 30+ kilometres of trails open year-round.


Georgian Nordic Membership Registration is open in November 2021 for winter activity.  Get Outdoors Parry Sound is open now for summer activities like biking and hiking please visit Go Parry Sound

During the winter, explore our groomed trails by cross-country ski, snowshoe or fat bike; during the summer take in the scenery on foot or go for a twisty spin on our ever-growing network of mountain-bike trails.

During the summer and into the fall join us in the water paddling on Nine Mile Lake and Mill Lake with the Georgian Nordic Paddling.

Dog Owners: Dogs must be on a leash and under control at all times, please clean up after your dogs and the owners must be Members of either the Georgian Nordic or Get Outdoors Parry Sound. Thank you.

Thank you to all the supporters, we have successfully met our fundraising targets for the Fatbike grooming needs this year.  We appreciate everyone chipping in!  See you next winter!
