December 18th Trail Report

Willoughby State Forest Trails Update

The Trails in Willoughby State Forest are ready to go! All the trails have been groomed which include the Little Loop, Middle Loop, Bartlett Loop, the CCC road and the Bartlett Mountain Rd. Tracks are set on the Little and Middle loops along with the two roads. There is about a one foot base and lots of fresh powder out there. We will get another grooming in before Christmas. We also plan to groom 2 to 3 times a week throughout the winter, weather permitting.

About Willoughby State Forest Trails

The Willoughby trails include 12 kilometers of wide groomed terrain suitable for both skate and classic skiing and are a gateway to other parts of Willoughby State Forest. Other uses (snowshoeing, walking, crampons, etc.) should avoid the groomed lanes and keep to one side (please). Leashed dogs (per Westmore Ordinance) are permitted; visitors are expected to clean up after their dogs on the groomed trails and in the parking area.

Trails are groomed 2-3 days per week, weather permitting. Trail use is by donation (suggested $5/person) and helps defray maintenance and grooming expenses. Thank you.

NorthWoods Trails Update

NorthWoods trails are not quite good yet. We just need more snow. We are however working on getting a base packed in and soon as we get some more snow we should be able to get everything groomed and ready to ski.

We endeavor to groom trails 2-3 times a week, weather permitting. Trail use is by donation (suggested $5/person) and defrays the expense of maintenance and grooming. Maps, rentals, and information are available at our Lodge.
