The Ney Nature Center Education Building will be open on Saturdays and Sundays in January, February, and March from 12pm to 4pm. Visitors are welcome to bird watch from the building, enjoy a warm beverage, and relax in our reading corner. Once snow conditions allow, visitors can also rent snowshoes or cross country skis. Equipment is available on a first come, first served basis. Equipment sizing will fit most adults and young adults. Youth sizing varies.

- Members $3.00 or $9.00 for a family of 3 or more people

Park is open daily. Ski trails are groomed by volunteers from the local snowmobile association within a day or two of snowfalls, and the sledding hill is also popular! We will post updates below when ski trails have been groomed.
Once ski grooming begins, snowshoeing/hiking and cross-country skiing take place on two different trail systems. Click here to view the Winter Trail Map.
