Cross Country Skiing

Midland City Forest offers wonderful cross country skiing on groomed trails for classic and skate skiing. Trails are designed for skiiers of all levels, from beginner to an advanced 11k loop. A .7 mile beginner trail is lighted from dusk until 8 p.m. every evening. Routes and distances can be obtained by clicking on the map to the right.
Rental Rates
Classic skis, boots and poles can be rented for $10 per 2 hour rental, skate skis can be rented for $15 per 2 hour rental, and they are available at the rental shed at the east end of the parking lot directly north of the Chalet.
Canine and Equine Use
We ask that during the winter season when cross country ski trails are being groomed that dog walkers and equestrians do not utilize the trail system because it undermines the grooming efforts.
