For directions to Crabbe Mountain park go to the Crabbe Mountain Park page.
You can access the Slippery Mitten Trails from the Embree's Loops Trails. Just follow the ATV Trail that cuts through all the other loop trails to the bottom of the hill until you emerge into a field. Stay along the side of the field until you come to Central Hainesville Road. Cross the road and you will find the start of the Slippery Mittens Trails.
Exit the main parking lot at Crabbe Mountain and turn left on Crabbe Mountain Road. At the bottom of the hill turn left onto Centrail Hainesville Road. Park along the side of the road just before the first driveway on the left. The trail enters a patch of trees on the right about 100 meters before Flume Crescent. There is also a small access trail about 100 meters in Flume Cresent on the right.
There is no charge to use the trails but you should sign in at the ticket office. The trails are on the Slippery Mitten Nature Preserve so please respect the trails.
The Embree Loops Trails are a series of long loops that travel various forest types, from hardwood to softwood to old fields grown in with Alders. Most of the trails are groomed for cross country skiing so if you are snowshoeing make sure you walk off to the side so you don't damage the track. The Fathead's Fartlek trail along the south-west boundary travels along a grown up clearcut with younger trees. There were many rabbit tracks when I visited but I didn't see any signs of other animals. The trail has many miscellaneous objects as trail markers like a New Brunswick Flag and a styrofoam head on an old T-bar.
