Winter Activities

Enjoy snowy landscapes and breathe in the crisp air as you glide down a trail on cross-country skis or explore using snowshoes.  These fun activities provide a low-impact workout and another way to enjoy the trails.  

Trails are not groomed for skiing.  We do not make our own snow.
