The forests and picturesque surroundings of Victoria Park are a natural draw for cross-country skiers, snowshoers and hikers during winter months. Truro Parks, Recreation and Culture staff groom approximately 20 kilometres of cross-country ski trails for classic and skate skiing. Equipment can be signed out free of charge, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Key entrances to the groomed trails are located in the parking lot in the lower park, on Wood Street, on the William Barnhill Drive Extension off Young Street (watch for the sign), and at Truro Junior High School (weekends only please).
