Afterhours trails

Trails are groomed for skate and classic cross-country skiing and were tracked on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 4:00 PM  More...

Comments: The trail system was groomed on 4/17 except for classic trail. Tracks have been set everywhere except white pine trail. The skate lanes range from smooth to a bit choppy and the tracks are full depth to broken up in the sunny sections of trail. There are no bare ground sections today but they are likely to appear eventually.

Comments: We did receive about 8" of new snow 3/30 & 3/31, but we are done grooming for the season. If you would like to snowshoe the trail, please stay to the side so those skiers who would like to break their own trail can still do so.

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:
