Cross-country Skiing

Location: Weiser State Forest

Cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are my favorite winter activities on the Weiser State Forest Port Clinton, Haldeman and Greenland tracts. 20 miles of joint-use roads and 20.5 miles of shared-use trails are open for snowmobiles. 

Cross-country skiing is permitted on joint-use roads as well as on twenty-five miles of shared-use trails. Maps showing the roads, trails, and access areas are available from the district office.
