A favorite trail for cross-country skiers, this trail also provides excellent opportunities for hikers and mountain bike enthusiasts. The trail follows several early 1900's railroad grades through a variety of forest types. Tracked and groomed for traditional skiing, the three loops provide excellent skiing for beginner to intermediate skiers. An Adirondack-style shelter overlooking Ed's Lake is located along the Birch Loop.
