Welcome to the River Road Cross-Country Ski Trail. This trail runs along the Chippewa River, approximately 2.5 miles north of the City of Cornell. Two separate paths challenge intermediate and advanced skiers through rolling terrain to the more gentle grade of the River Road. The River Road is an excellent place for beginners to practice their strides. Well-behaved dogs are allowed on this trail system! The blue trail is recommended for advanced skiers as it offers steep grades and is four kilometers in length. The yellow trail is 2.4 kilometers and classed as an intermediate trail. It provides more gentle slopes with fewer steep grades. Both trails are numbered from point to point to help skiers identify their location on the trail. If you are on the blue trail, follow blue numbers 1 thru 11; on the yellow trail, follow yellow numbers 1 thru 7. Both routes return along River Road to the parking area. Please use the trail with care. Keep an eye out for birds, wildlife, and fellow skiers. Be courteous and yield to faster skiers. Do not extend yourself beyond your physical abilities.
