Namekagon Trail

The Namekagon Trail offers great opportunities for wildlife viewing in summer and classic-technique cross-country skiing in winter. 

Trail Information: The 1.7 km east loop is open year-round for hiking and skiing. Wetlands on the 2.4 km north loop and 2.2 km south loop prevent hiking, but both are groomed and tracked when snow conditions permit. Ski the perimeter of the loops for 3.4 km route. 

What to Expect: The trail is fairly flat and suitable for beginner or novice skiers.
