Nordic Trail System
Welcome to the '12-'13 ski season!!
TOP is pleased to offer 8 kilometers of winter trails groomed for nordic skating and classic flat-track skiing. Also: we have something new for this year! There is now a snowshoe trail from the parking area to the meadow. Watch for trail condition updates below. We hope all those who visit the park will appreciate it and help to preserve its pristine nature. The following basic guidelines must be honored for the Nordic Trails Program to continue.
- Please honor the request to pay a donation use fee. It will allow this opportunity for all to continue. Season passes are available by calling 626-9788. $50 individual/$100 family donation. Season passes are fully tax deductable.
- No pets allowed (ie. dogs, horses, etc.) The only tracks on the groomed trails are to be skiers and wild animals.
- The park land is surrounded by private property. Please stay on the designated trails to minimize impacts to the land and to avoid trespassing on private property.
- The trails are open from dawn till dusk.
- Vehicle access and parking is allowed only within the designated parking area at the trailhead. Do not drive up the Highland Drive roadway past the trail head parking lot.
- Skiers & snowshoers only; no mechanized vehicles of any kind (including ATV’s, snowmobiles, etc.) are allowed.

TRAIL USER SAFETY — BE CAREFUL AND ALERT!
- Safety must always be a high priority. You may encounter obstacles, ice, bumps, branches, holes, wires, etc.
- Be prepared for rapid chages due to bad weather or other unexpected outing circumstances.
- Ski with a buddy. Keep your group together. Don’t let someone lag and become lost. Keep small children in sight.
- Be considerate of others and use common sense and caution. Yeild to uphill traffic.
- The trails are not patrolled. You are responsible for your own safety. Use at your own risk. Leaving the trail can be extremely dangerous – Stay on trail!
We sincerely apologize for the lack of grooming reports this winter. The trails were once again magnificently groomed and maintained by the dynamic duo of Chris Haaland and John Kuijvenhoven, and trail reports were kept up to date on Jerry Roberts' blog HERE.
We look forward to bringing you a new and updated nordic page for next season. Stay tuned, and thanks very much to everyone in region for their support!!
