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 private property so please respect the trails.
The Slippery Mitten Trails are a series of progressive loops that travel through a mainly softwood forest with intermittent openings and alder patches. The trails are long loops that are groomed for cross-country skiing but can also be used for snowshoeing. Just don't walk on the groomed trails.
