McNearney Cross Country Ski Trail

Area Status: Not Cleared

The trail offers four skiing loops ranging from a 1.7 kilometer (1 mile) flat beginner loop to a 9.6 kilometer (6 mile) loop with hills and corners that demand more advanced techniques.

There is ample parking, a warming cabin with wood stove and firewood, and an outhouse.

The parking lot and surrounding opening were the site of Camp 4, a logging camp used during the early 1900s. The McNearney Ski Trail is located on ancient sand dunes just above the shores of Glacial Lake Algonquin (old Lake Superior). The hills are covered mostly by second growth hardwood forest. Camp 4 Loop passes through unthinned second growth hardwood forest.
