The park's large trail network is maintained by the Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club[1] and is used for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter and hiking in the summer. There are over 20 km of groomed cross-country ski trails designed for beginner, intermediate and advancing skiers and a toboggan hill located near the parking at the main gate.
