Cross-country skiers are welcome to break their own trails anywhere on the refuge. However, if you prefer an easier glide, the Northern Hardwoods Cross-country Ski Area offers ten miles of groomed Nordic trails. Trails are groomed on Thursdays or Fridays as conditions allow. Turn west off M-77 onto Robinson Road three tenths of a mile south of the blinking light in Germfask. The trail head is at the end of the road. Brochures with maps are available, during the ski season, at the kiosk at the start of the trails or you can print your own copy.
