You are welcome to enjoy trails and park spaces, including the dog parks. Outdoor recreation in the form of walking, biking, hiking, and running can provide valuable physical and mental health benefits. 

If you do not feel well or someone in your household is sick, please stay home.

Phase One includes an access road, the initial phase of the parking lot (16 stalls), purpose-designed cross-country ski trails, and the initial snowmaking infrastructure. This first phase of development was made possible through a land donation by Dan and Natalie Erdman, along with $1.2M contributions from individuals, businesses, and grants.
