Mukwonago Trail

Groomed snow trail for classic cross country skiing through hardwood forest

The Mukwonago Trail passes through an oak and white pine forest in view of several small lakes and ponds. 

Trail Information: The four loops are 2.3, 4.4, 7.5, and 13.6 km. When snow conditions permit, trail is about 12 feet wide with classic tracks set to one side. 

During the winter recreation season, ski trail conditions are updated weekly in the Cross-Country Ski Report.  

What to Expect: The trail flows easily over rolling to hilly terrain with moderate up hill slopes. Beginner skiers do well on the shorter loops, while the longer loops are better suited for intermediate skiers. The 13.6 km loop has several long down hills, with the longest being nearly a half kilometer.
