Lots Of Trails

Great cross country skiing area with lots of trails. Minimal crowds when we went- we took 2 dogs and 5 people and saw only maybe 1 group of snowmobiles all day. There's easy and more challenging trails as well as shorter loops for those of us not so experienced in cross country skiing. It was really serene and relaxing- even with 5 goofballs and 2 furry goofballs running amok!
