Single track, one way, classical only (skating added fall 2017) trail in rolling terrain through hardwood and pine forest with scenic vistas of small lakes. Fast downhill runs with safe glide outs make the main loop more challenging.

First time skiing beautiful Tomahawk Lake Ski Trail (Whitetail Turnpike) and was super impressed! The grooming was excellent for both skate and classic. As we were leaving, someone was even coming to groom up the trail on a Saturday afternoon. This will definitely be one of our regular ski locations. It is 100% worth the nice drive out to Barnes!

Grooming

Groomed the outer yellow loop both skate and classic. Was pleased to see virtually all the leaves buried. Didn't need to groom the classic as it is nicely skied in after about the inch of snow that fell. Trail is leveling and firming up nicely.

Groomed all trails today. Both skate and classic look great! There are small areas with oak leaves due to the wind. Best conditions of the year.

Grooming

Around 4 inches of snow fell which have left the trails in great shape after grooming tonight. The entire system was groomed both skate and classic. The classic tracks are full depth and solid. The skate lane is flat and pretty firm. Bruce also snowshoed in the snowshoe trail. Hope you get a chance to get out and enjoy!

Grooming

The Yellow trail was groomed edge to edge today. Skate skiing should be firm and fast tomorrow. The Blue classic only trail was groomed and new track set. The new snowshoe trail has received much use and now looks to be firm enough to Fat Bike. Enjoy.

We skate skied and classic skied. My compliments to the excellent grooming and trail conditions. The skate lane was very smooth, flat and firm and the tracks were great. Like mid-winter skiing despite not a lot snow in the woods yet! If you haven’t tried this gem of a trail, you should!

Grooming

The skate deck was groomed and classic track set this morning. With colder temps the skate deck should firm up even after the recent fresh snow. The warming house with changing room is open and a portable potty is available on site. The newly opened snow shoe trail starts on the north side of the parking area beyond the grooming equipment. Come on out and enjoy. Happy New Year!

I have never skied at Tomahawk Lake in the past but will be sure to visit often in future. The trail has a wonderful flow for classic skiing with rolling terrain and numerous in track gradual climbs with only one herringbone climb. The fall trail prep is evident as the trail bed is flat, mowed short, and little to any overhanging brush. After a foot of snow yesterday, I was amazed at the work that had been done in one day's prep. Kudos to all those involved in the Barnes community, your efforts are evident and much appreciated. Your trail is a gem and I look forward to future visits.
