Reported Trail Conditions: Good
Bundle up & enjoy the trails.
Please Note: The southern section of the orange trail will be closed for the remainder of the season. The remainder of the trails are open as usual.
Please note for the courtesy of the skiiers, we remind people using snow shoes they should use alternate open spaces within the forests and the larger open spaces of the park and not the cross country ski trails. Persons walking in the trails are requested to please stay in the middle between the two sets of tracks or other open spaces.
