New for this year – return of Excellent Adventure, which has been added back into Ed’s Loop. Also we will have 10K of snow bike trails – watch for announcements soon! Thanks all our volunteers who tested and fixed all the lights and did the brushing and cutting for new trails.
When winter fully arrives we have 35K of groomed ski trails. Trails are groomed daily for skating with set tracks for classic skiing. There are 5K of trails with trail lights on until 9 p.m. seven days a week. There are also back country loops – stride through the woods making your own tracks. Multi-use trails starting at the Woodland Road trailhead allow you to ski or snowshoe with your dog buddies any time you like.
Snowshoeing? We have three marked snowshoe trails. Bearpaw Loop has a lookout of the surrounding area at the water towers. Muggun Loop explores a creek and wooded area crisscrossed by many wildlife tracks.
