Skier on McKeeber Ski Trail

Looking for a quieter, less manicured alternative to highly groomed trails without sacrificing quality? McKeever Hills Ski Trail may be just the ticket for you! McKeever Hills offers loops for skiers at a range of skill levels, including many downhill runs, and the trails are only periodically packed and tracked. Six miles of trail pass beside several lakes and through various forest types. Also, if you would enjoy a peaceful night amid the stars and moonlight, rent McKeever Cabin, a rustic log cabin on the west shore of McKeever Lake.

The route is open daily during daylight hours from December through April, depending on snow conditions. No trail fee is required. Trail loops are packed and groomed once a week or as conditions allow. Trail segments are well-marked with blue diamonds starting at the trailhead, and are marked at each trail junction. Location maps are posted at all trail intersections. A small parking lot off H-13 is available at the entrance to the trailhead. Link to Trail Map.

Caution should be used when skiing these trails. Although trails are occasionally groomed, some spots may be icy or uneven or may have twigs. Under icy conditions, skiing is not safe because it becomes difficult to maintain control within the designed limits of the trail.

Be aware of changing weather conditions and personal fatigue which can increase the hazards of the out-of-doors. Use the "buddy system" to make your outing safer and more enjoyable. Ski only to your ability.
