Ski/Snowshoe Trails


Miles of Cross-Country Ski Trails

The Washburn Trail, which is the largest and most popular of the 3 ski trails, is located adjacent to Perch Lake Park in the Town of Woodboro. The Washburn Ski Trail is 12.0-miles long, offering 4.0 miles of trail groomed for tracked skiing, and 8.0 miles of trail groomed for ski skating. As a result of the hilly topography found throughout the Washburn Lake Area, these trails are best suited for skiers possessing an intermediate to advanced skill set.

The Nose Lake Trail is also located in the Town of Woodboro and offers 7.0 miles of trail groomed for traditional tracked skiing. The gentle topography, upon which the Nose Lake Trail is located, makes this system very popular with skiers possessing either a beginner or intermediate skill set.  Another popular feature of the Nose Lake Trail is that dogs are permitted.

The Cassian Two-Way Trail is 7.5 miles in length in each direction, and as its name implies the trail is located in the Town of Cassian. The Cassian Trail is also located on gentle rolling terrain, and is designed to accommodate users with a wide range of skills. The Cassian Trail is groomed for traditional tracked skiing.

Hiking and Snowshoe Trails

Oneida County Forestry maintains two hiking and snowshoeing trails at Almon Park. These trails travel through a variety of habitats and together total approximately 2.25-miles in length. The Almon Park wetlands trail features 3-boardwalks totaling more than 1,100 feet in length. In addition there is a network of approximately 40 miles of trails for wildlife management and recreation. The network is located on old logging roads that have been seeded with clover and are maintained to serve as wildlife migration paths and as walking trails for hunters and hikers.

For snowshoe enthusiasts looking for a primitive experience, you may want to try the Enterprise Block, an 8-mile trail located in the southeast Oneida County Forest. Dogs are allowed on this trail, but must be kept under direct voice control at all times. For individuals seeking a more challenging silent sport experience, the Washburn Trail System provides 5.0 miles of snowshoe trail and 11.0 miles of hiking trails. Pets are not allowed if trails are snow covered.

Please stay on trails and obey all signs.
No snowshoes on ski trails.
