Cross Country Skiing
The Jefferson County Parks Department provides groomed cross-country ski trails at three of its county parks: Korth County Park, Carlin Weld County Park, and Dorothy Carnes County Park. Trails are groomed from December through March when snow conditions allow and temperatures remain below freezing. When snow depths allow we will set classic ski tracks at each location, otherwise we groom the trails flat for both skate and classic skiing.
There is no set timing for grooming, so please visit this website for updates on grooming and snow conditions. Hiking and dog walking on the groomed trail surfaces is prohibited by county ordinance so please walk to the sides of the groomed trails and keep your dogs on leashes at all times.
Trails are groomed with a Polaris Ranger modified with tracks and pulling 8’ Ginzu Groomer and track setters. We groom as often as our other responsibilities allow so always check this site for updates or contact us at 920-674-7260. dates on grooming and snow conditions.
Hiking and dog walking on the groomed trail surfaces is prohibited by county ordinance so please walk to the sides of the groomed trails and keep your dogs on leashes at all times.
Dorothy Carnes County Park has more than 8 miles of trails open to winter recreation. The West side of the Park off Hwy 12 is open for hiking, snow shoeing, skiing and dog walking while the east side of the Park off Banker Road has 4 miles of groomed designated cross-country ski trails. The east side of the park is always our priority when grooming. East and West Carnes Park features moderate rolling hills with gentle grades and great views of Rose Lake and the surrounding glaciated plains. [Carnes Winter Recreation trail map]
Carlin Weld County Park located in south eastern Jefferson County has 1.5 miles of groomed trails for skiing and snowshoeing. The upper prairies and flat terrain make this location great for beginners on skis. [Carlin Weld Trail Map]
Korth County Park located on the West shore of Rock Lake has over 2 miles of groomed trails for both cross-country skiing and snowshoeing as well as a sledding hill. [Korth Trail Map]
Jefferson County Dog Park and Terri Tinsley Dog Exercise Area is periodically groomed to make it easier for walking or snowshoeing. Skiing is not allowed at this park.
Please remember, county ordinance prohibits hiking or walking on groomed ski trails so please respect the trails and walk to the outside of the groomed surfaces and keep dogs on leashes.
