There are plenty of other recreational activities one can enjoy when the trails are iced over and a new form of recreation is needed! Keep in tip top shape during the colder months and consider these recreational options:

Cross-Country Skiing and Snowshoeing at Lapham Peak: Visited by families and couples who enjoy 17.2 miles of skiing trails, including the popular 2.5-mile lit ski trail that loops through the rustic surroundings. For those days when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, a portion of the lit trail is filled with man-made snow to ensure optimal ski conditions. Special candlelight skiing are popular events in January and February.

Nashotah County Park is an excellent cross-country skiing and snowshoeing site for all ages and abilities. Access three loops, totaling 6-miles of trails, on gently rolling to hilly terrain.

The Glacial Drumlin State Trail offers a level, ungroomed trail for cross-country skiing & snowshoeing.

Ice Skating and Curling in the winter can be found indoors, too.

Naga-Waukee Ice Arena offers ice-skating year-round with public skating hours.

Kettle Moraine Curling Club is host to numerous bonspiels, drawing curling teams from all over the country.

Lois Jensen Nature Preserve is a popular spot for ice fishing access to Nagawicka Lake
