Nice Nordic Center, has trails of all abilities for X-country skiiing or snowshoeing. Was disappointed no senior discount and the only way to get to some of the outer green trails was only on blue trails. Otherwise, good experience. Many miles of trails.

Such incredible place for family fun, relaxation, variety of free activities in every season. We especially love it in winter. Wonderful staff! Its very affordable and even more so if you are YMCA gym member. If you want to take advantage of special activities like horse riding, horse sleighing, or dog sledding - book ahead of time online. Otherwise plenty of other activities and equipment to enjoy for variety of interests. The nature is stunning!
