Cross Country Skiing
Hyalite Canyon provides a scenic backdrop to over 30 km of groomed cross-country ski trails, plus endless ungroomed terrain to explore. This network of ski trails are on old logging roads, summer hiking trails, and connector trails built for Nordic skiers. The majority of the groomed ski trails are marked with blue diamonds. Detailed trail maps are posted on the parking area bulletin boards. Note that the Forest Service grooms only intermittently and not all sections of trail are groomed.
