Notes

Most trails ramble through hardwood forest along any of several routes across all difficulty levels. Camel Back provides some fun hills, but Oak Run is particularly exciting. Morgan Lane offers beautiful view of a pond from a birch-lined ridge while effortlessly gliding back to the trailhead. Infrequently groomed.

I classic skiied Sunfish using my skins. The trails had not been rolled yet, I think they are rolling them this year, or at least they have in previous years. It was a fun adventure of plowing through the soft powder while following tracks from other skiiers. This is a multi-use trail so there are lots of foot prints, paw prints and snowshoe tracks. There were a few sticks and I found a gouge on my skis when I finished, so that's why I put B skis.

Not worth it. Tons of walkers and bikers on trails that have destroyed the trails. Exposed rocks and dirt. The best skiing is on the non-groomed lake.

Unfortunately groomed with corduroy and not a single classic track to be found. Ugh! Gorgeous setting as long as you’re ok with no track...

Nice ski. Twigs, leaves, and sticks on most trails. Most trails ungroomed. No gravel on the trails I used. I skied the largest loop possible using a combination of trails. Oak Run, Linda's Loop, and Camel Back had some steeps that made me glad for a ski helmet. Linda's Loop had a tree fall over the path than could not be side stepped. It was on a downhill, but could be seen in advance. Hopefully that will be removed soon. The fat tire bike trails would meet perpendicular to the ski trails for the most part. I'm not sure if they set trails here, but they did lay some corduroy down over part of the trail (see photo).
