Skiing With Dogs

Dogs are welcome on some of our cross-country ski trails. Trails cross a combination of public and private lands, and different trail easements have different kinds of restrictions on dogs, bikes, walking, etc. Please be sure to understand where you can go and what rules you need to follow with your dog so that we can all get along out there! Check out all Our Trails.
