The cross-country ski trails in GF have been groomed for the season. Tracks are in fair condition and may fill in with snow in the open areas but at this time the trail is passable. The best places to access the ski trail are:
Riverside Dam parking lot (just off Red Dot Place)
West parking lot in Riverside Park (might be challenging if the parking lot has not been plowed yet)
7th Avenue North access
lower parking lot north of the Sorlie Bridge downtown
Lincoln Drive Park
Lincoln golf clubhouse
Elmwood access (off 32nd Avenue South)
Sunbeam access (3777 Belmont Road)
47th Avenue South
Look for the blue ski signs.
In areas outside of Lincoln Drive Park the skate/ski trail follows alongside the classic track most of the time but in the narrower tree areas the skate/ski track is located along the outside of the tree line. Updated trail maps will be coming soon! Don't forget: Cross-country skis, sleds and snowshoes are available for use at no cost in the warming house at Lincoln Drive Park! Come on, give it a try! The warming house is open but you should visit www.gfparks.org for hours of operation. .
