MECCA trails

Trails are groomed for skate and classic cross-country skiing and were tracked on Friday, January 24, 2020 at 11:00 AM

Comments: With the continued snowfall all last week the MECCA grooming crew got out and groomed last Friday morning.† With the warm temps donít expect a solid deck, but it did seem to firm up better than we thought.† They fought drifting in the open, but were able to flatten the trail into very good conditions for the weekend.† The track set deep and true so classical skiing should be excellent.† See you on the trail. Spruce Hills and the Homestead trail have been widened out for the race in February but will continued to be tracked best line classical until then. The snowshoe trail is packed and in great condition also. We do allow snowshoe travel on the groomed ski trail, but ask that you stay to the edge away from the track. Under no circumstance is walking without snowshoes allowed. Trails are on rolling glacial terrain through pine, spruce and tamarack forests. A heated chalet with a vault toilet, wax bench, and changing room is located at the Cabin trailhead. There is a second trailhead at the Little Turtle Flowage parking lot.

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:
