When snow starts to pile up this winter, a usual spot for cross country skiers will not be available. The Oak Opening Ski Trail will be closed this winter during a pine tree management project.
There is a trail that will be open at Secor Metropark. Skiers can start at the trailhead near the Nature Photography Center.
Volunteers In Parks purchased a track-setter for the staff to use to groom the 4.8-mile route. A large map is posted at the trailhead near the Nature Photography Center and identifies the ski and walking trails.
