February 9th Trails Update

Willoughby State Forest Weekly Trails Update

All the trails have been groomed as of 2/9/2018, which include the Little Loop, Middle Loop, Bartlett Loop, the Connector trail, the CCC road and the Bartlett Mountain rd. Tracks are set on the Little and along with the two roads. Willoughby State Forest is a testament of just how much snow we get in the NEK. This last storm dumped probably a foot and half of powder on the mountain. The trails are groomed nicely but still a little soft, but with the warm temps this weekend they should harden up. Make time and get out there and enjoy the trails!

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.
