Opportunities to cross-country ski, snowshoe, and hike may be found in the Upper Frijoles Trail located just off of Highway 4, near Forest Service 289. There are two trails, one is 2.4 miles round-trip while the other is 5 miles round-trip. Trails are open during daylight hours only. Hikers and skiers are asked to register at the trailhead. Pets are not permitted. Please pack out all trash. Snowshoe users and hikers are asked to stay beside the ski trail.
