Snowy Trails

There have been a couple of light snowfalls so far this season so it is time to get your cross country skis and snowshoes ready for some winter fun. The trails at the former Cherry Valley Golf Course are a good place to get started. The trails are open for hiking as well but if you see fresh ski tracks please do not walk in them but feel free to make your own path. The best time to get out is right after a fresh snowfall so keep your eyes on the weather and enjoy your national wildlife refuge this winter.
