Description

This small trail system is right next to the Snowy Range Ski Area and has about two miles of easy trails for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

All the trails loop around and come back to the trailhead so there are no long out and back treks. Only Park Loop has steep narrow sections making this a great place to learn how to cross country ski. It is also worth snowshoeing over to Hanging Lake for a peek.

The best place to park is in the Northeast corner of the overflow parking area as that is where you will find the trailhead. But some people like to park in the main parking area to be closer to the ski lodge.
