Cross Country Skiing
The Trego Lake Ski trail will no longer be groomed and maintained by the Riverway.
Hiking trails and the frozen St. Croix river may be appropriate for skiing but are ungroomed. Please familiarize yourself with the trails before attempting to ski them. The Sandrock Cliff Trail provides a 5 mile loop of beginning to intermediate skiing. One side of the loop follows the river while the other side is more interior, providing a wide variety of terrain and scenery.
State Parks have groomed ski trails and annually offer an opportunity for candlelight skiing. The annual American Birkebiner near Hayward, Wisconsin crosses Riverway land and brings together top American and International skiers.
