Hiking & Skiing Trails

Deep Portage maintains nearly eleven miles of trails for public use. During the winter, we groom many of them for cross-country skiing. The trails vary in difficulty, with more difficult trails featuring frequent steep hills.

Dogs are welcome to come exploring with you, but must remain on their leashes. Motorized vehicles are not permitted on Deep Portage trails except for the access trails noted on this map.

Current Trail Conditions:

1/6/2021 Notes: Last groom was 12/31. Lost quite a bit of snow during warm weather- trails are pretty icy and some spots have patches of dirt/grass. Won't groom again until we get more snow.

12/31/2020 Notes: Base is still quite thin. Beginner ski loop is groomed, just not the spur from the Visitor Center to the loop.
