      In the winter, Winding Trails turns into a virtual winter wonderland with activities such as cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, and sledding.

      CROSS COUNTRY SKI CENTER

      Three hundred fifty acres of pristine woodland, lakes and wildlife provide a gorgeous setting for the cross-country ski center. Established in 1972, the facilities have since undergone over thirty years of expansion and improvements. The Winding Trails Cross Country Ski Center offers both the beginner and experienced skier a high quality, enjoyable experience. A variety of daily activities provide fun for the whole family. Members are exempt from the trail fees. Rental fees, however, do apply. Overnight accommodations are available at several nearby inns and motels.

      Cross Country Skiing – Trails and grooming are the heart of cross-country enjoyment. Winding Trails’ 20 kilometer trail system is groomed daily. Skiers find hours of pleasure traveling through the 350 acres of prime woodland, brooks and spring fed ponds. The wide, double tracked trails on gently rolling terrain provide even the first time skier with a positive and fun experience. The entire Winding Trails cross-country trail system is completely mapped and marked with degrees of difficulty.

      Sledding – Winding Trails provides one of the best sliding and tubing hills in the area. Located along our soccer and softball field this 150 ft hill with a slope of 20 degrees provides thrills and chills. You are welcome to bring your own sled or rent a tube from our rental area

      Ice Skating – Eight Acre Walton Pond is available for ice skating weather permitting and is resurfaced often.
