Cross-Country Skiing

Cross-country skiing is a favorite winter activity on the Loyalsock State Forest. The high elevation of the Loyalsock State Forest provides for some very good cross-county skiing opportunities. The district maintains two systems specifically managed for skiing, although skiers are welcome on all roads and trails. The trailhead along World’s End Road provides access to 21 miles of ski trails and has shelters and latrines for your convenience. The Hawkeye and Sand Springs Ski Trails offers an additional 15 miles of trails and winter time views of the Devil’s Elbow Natural Area. The parking lot is located on the paved and well maintained Ellenton Mountain Road.
