Summer and fall hiking is beautiful. I recommend the Moss-Hanna and Bog Trails. In the Winter all types of terrain are available for cross country. The trails are broken in making it easier to ski. If you're looking for something easier, you can just ski...More

We stopped for a visit at the S.B. Elliot State Park ranger station just off of I-80 exit 111. Just inside the ranger station they have a plethora of information pamphlets on the local outdoors. Many maps for hiking trails, camping, and even snowmobile trails.
