Winter recreation trails on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest are now open and ready for visitors.
“The weather has been pretty cooperative and we have been able to get a good base set that will hopefully carry us through the season,” said Jeff Mell, Lands and Recreation Program manager for the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. “We would like to thank our recreation users for their patience while we ensured our trails were ready for the season.”
The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest offers 20 cross-country ski trails. These trails include numerous loops of varying distances providing an opportunity for skiers of all experience levels. The trails are packed, groomed and have tracks set on a regular basis by either the Forest Service or through agreements with local ski clubs and other entities.
