Winter Recreation Opportunities: Shared Trails

Some trails are shared by cross-country skiers, snowshoers, and snowmobilers. Please keep trails safe by operating snowmobiles at minimum speed near skiers or snowshoers and maintaining minimum speed until well beyond those on foot. Skiers and snowshoers should also be alert for snowmobilers. Some trails are designated for skiers only and some for snowmobiles only. Restrictions are posted, but check with the local Forest Service office for more information.

Don't Go Out Alone
Please do not cross-country ski, snowshoe or snowmobile alone if you are inexperienced and /or unfamiliar with the terrain. Most shops which rent equipment can also advise you on trails. If you do go out alone, be sure to notify someone where you are going, and when you expect to return. Also, be sure to notify this person on your return.
