Grab your poles: Oneida County is a cross-country skiing and snowshoeing paradise. While expert skiers train here, you don’t need to wear Lycra to enjoy our trails!
You’ll find an excellent variety of cross-country skiing trails, including trails groomed for both traditional and skate-style skiing. You can find trails that will give you a taste of winter but will be easy to complete, as well as systems that can take a weekend or more to explore. And no trail is far from a warm Oneida County lodge or restaurant.
Oneida County also offers numerous snowshoeing opportunities. Explore the region’s designated snowshoe trails, head off on your own into the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest or just take a spin outside the cabin—but make sure to get pictures!
