Trail Review


East of Cable.


Grooming: Classic only. Multiple loop trail system.
Snowshoe Trails: No


"The Rock Lake Trail is managed primarily as a classic style cross country ski trail. As of the fall of 2003 the majority of this trail is closed to mountain bike use. See the CAMBA Rock Lake Bike Trail for bike use in this area. Trail Length: 2 Km, 4 Km, 7.1 Km, 11.5 Km, 16 Km, and Rock Lake Loop which adds 1.8 Km to the 11.5 and 16 Km trails..."

"...The Rock Lake Trail is a narrow classic only ski trail that traverses rolling to hilly terrain. This trail is suitable for intermediate and advanced skiers. When snow depths permits, the trail is groomed and track is set. Downhills are long and twisting but have good run outs. The two longest loops pass a number of small scenic lakes. The trail is located in a maple and oak forest that has occassional stands of large white pine. Uphills are relatively short but numerous giving the skier a good workout. Forest Road 207 is a snowmobile trail in the winter. Hiking on the Rock Lake Trail is best in the short segments between Forest Road 207 and the lakes - Rock Lake, Frels and Hildebrand Lakes or spring Lake."
