Trails are groomed for skate and classic cross-country skiing and were groomed (corduroy/levelled) on Monday, March 01, 2021 at 12:00 PM

Comments: Trails are being groomed today. The rest of the week will have high temps in the 40s, and it's possible this will be the last day of grooming. This message will be updated when we get a report from the groomers There is a logging operation on the blue trails between the 4 and 4.5 mile markers that may bring additional debris to the trail. Capacity limits due to Covid has resulted in the lots not being fully plowed. If the lot is full you will need to park in another location. Warming shelters are also closed due to Covid. If you run into a rule violation on the trail (hikers, horses, etc..), please call or text the DNR Tip line at 800-TIP-WDNR or 800-847-9367

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:
