Cross-Country Skiing

This ski starts along a woods road which is heavily traveled by locals and accesses hunting camps located on International Paper property, but is open to the public for recreation.

The pond will come in on the left with ample opportunities for vistas out over the ice. Chimney, Humphrey, Pine, and Bullhead Mountains can be seen from the shore.
