Things to Note

Rochester Park & Rec and Rochester Active Sports Club work together to provide a variety of trails for all to enjoy.

Please check the winter sports map to plan your route.

Groomed ski-only trails: trails on the east side of the park are groomed for cross country skiing only. All other park users should avoid these trails. 

Groomed multi-use trails: All trails in the park except for the ski-only trails are open to all users, however this season we are grooming an additional trail through the meadow for hiking and snowshoe use. Click to see map. 

Nordic Ski Team: The Rochester Nordic Ski Team (students grades 7-12) practice in the park on Monday and Tuesday from 4-5:30 pm. Trails are open during this time, but be aware that this is a high traffic time.

Pro Tips

  • The best snowshoeing happens off the beaten path! Try the meadow.
  • Dress in layers. Skiing and snowshoeing will warm you right up!
