Deer Hollow Non-Motorized Winter Recreation Area

The Deer Hollow Winter Recreation Area encompasses more than 1,300 acres of some of the most beautiful winter landscapes on the Dixie National Forest. Just a short half hour from Cedar City, the area is ideal for cross-country skiing. Skiing season usually starts mid-December and wraps up mid to late March.

Whether you are experienced or new to crosscountryskiing, with nearly 37 kilometers (23miles) of groomed cross-country ski trails, there are loops designed for every level and type of skiier. From the relatively quick and easy A Loop, to the more arduous E Loop, there is something for everyone.
