About the Trail


The trail is very scenic and passes through both pine and aspen timber with gently rolling terrain. It is only mowed in late summer, as the trail is used for Grouse hunting in mid-September. This trail is located in the Price County Forest which allows the option of exploring other roads and trails in the surrounding area.

There is no fee required.

This is a very good trail for the beginner skiers. Older skiers might also find the relatively flat trails just right for a daily exercise routine. Groomed for classic skiing only by the Flambeau Nordic Ski Club.

Horseback Riding

The trail surface is grass. There are no significantly wet areas that would be a hindrance to horseback riding.

Snowshoeing and Fat Biking
