Kettle Moraine State Forest - Lapham Peak Unit


Kettle Moraine State Forest - Lapham Peak Unit trails

Trails are groomed for skate cross-country skiing and were tracked on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 3:00 AM

Comments: We have a loop! The loop around the pond is now open. Tail end hill, and magic carpet ride are also now open. The snow was spread, tilled and finished groomed early Tuesday Morning. There are still a few bumps, but they will wear down with skiing, and nightly grooming. There was also a classical track set. Please stay off of the snow that has not been leveled or groomed yet. Skiing this early in the season would not be possible without our volunteers or donors. Trail lights will be on Monday through Saturday. We will continue to monitor the weather as the week goes on, and temps rise, and groom when possible.

Trails are groomed for skate cross-country skiing and were packed (rolled/compacted) on Wednesday, December 05, 2018 at 2:00 PM

Comments: The trails are being rolled and in fair to good condition with a 1.5" base. There is a good amount of stubble and grass poking through in spots. There's not enough snow to set track, but about 4" on the ground.

Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area


MECCA trails

Trails are groomed for skate and classic cross-country skiing and were groomed (corduroy/levelled) on Monday, December 10, 2018 at 6:00 AM

Comments: Officially we are now open, though the snow cover is a little light we were able to comb the trail for those of you who couldn't wait for real winter to get here. Please remember that from now on, no walking is allowed on the trails without skis or snowshoes! Even with the low snow level it will make grooming and maintenance of the trail more difficult. See You on the Trail

Cross-country ski trails

Get Outdoors and go skiing!

Wisconsin's state parks and forests take on a special beauty during winter. Enjoy the winter scenery, get healthy exercise and have some fun by cross-country skiing on hundreds of miles of trails. Some trails are tracked for traditional skiing, some groomed for skate-style skiing and many are wide enough to accommodate both styles. There are also numerous miles of ungroomed trail for skiers to explore.

State Trail Pass

Most properties require a vehicle admission sticker to park at the property. Several properties also require a state trail pass for all skiers age 16 and older. These fees go directly to support the operation of the Wisconsin State Park System.

Groomed Trails

Wisconsin's state park trails are maintained by department staff and volunteer groomers. Ski trail conditions are subject to change and may be closed if snow conditions are poor. Click on the link for the property where you are interested in skiing for more information.

Hiking, snowshoeing and pets

To keep ski trails in the best condition possible, once the trails are snow-covered, hiking, snowshoeing, pets and other uses are not permitted on the ski trails. Other property trails are designated for these uses. Skijoring and dog-sledding are also not allowed on groomed ski trails. For more information about these activities on DNR lands, see:
