Description

The Chimney Park trail system is excellent for a relaxed family afternoon in the woods. Located near a Boy Scout Camp, this trail system has four main loops that travel through a forest of Pine and Aspen.

Most of the elevation changes are gentle except for certain sections of the Jelm View and Lodgepole Loops. The trails are wide and well marked with blue diamonds along the trail and signs at the intersections. The Forest Service has added maps posted to trees near the old trail signs. These are a great addition to the trail system. Several old Forest Service roads intersect the trails and provide additional opportunities for exploring.

In the winter the trails are groomed for cross country skiing by the Forest Service when they are able to do so.

  1. We were back at Chimney Park today. Rebecca was teaching a ski lesson, and I got a good solo ski in. The snow was great! There were quite a few people in the parking lot, too, which was great to see.

  2. Happy New Year! The family and I went to Chimney Park to ski this morning. There were a couple of places where there wasn’t a lot of snow, but otherwise, it was great skiing.
