Activities:

Cross Country Ski Loop - 3 miles

Nordic Track groomed lake trail starts right from the Visitor Center. You immediately have beautiful views! The golf course is bordered by a north and south road and on the west by a large sloping hill which is very easy to go up if you are not paying attention to the trails on the south west side. The loop is like 4

fingers that starts about 5 min west of the visitors center. Recommend going counter clockwise for beginners. It is flat at the beginning this way with a slight

decline on the way back. The bridge at the start of the trail can be icy and tricky for first timers to manuever so for them I recommend walk with your skis over the bridge to the fork on the right and puts skis on on the flat. Duck pond about 10 min around loop. Can go off trail if you like. Bathrooms at the visitors

center. Great thing about WMSP is you will hardly see anyone else on the course. I have been several times on Saturdays and only see a handful of other small groups.
