Cross Country Skiing
There are many pristine X-C ski and snowshoe trails in the Eagle River area. The trails are among the best in the Midwest. The trails are groomed for both skating and classic-style-cross-country skiing.
Eagle River area snowshoers will find trekking opportunities on both trails and miles upon miles of logging roads. Fresh snow has blanketed Eagle River's snowshoe trails. The deep Eagle River area snowbase provides a very good opportunity for snowshoeing There may be some rough layers on the snow, especially in open areas. With little wind and more fresh snow it's a beautiful time to be out on the trails just as long as you dress warmly for both comfort and safety.
The Shannon Lake Trail that is nice to try this time of year. From the west trailhead, you can trek all the way around the undeveloped lake (under a mile). It is single-track and a little hilly. There are some roots along the trail, so it's better to go there when there is lots of snow (ie, later in the winter).
Directions to the West Trailhead of Shannon Lake: From Highway 45 on the north side of Eagle River, take Hwy G West about 11 miles to Four Corner Lane. Turn Left/South. Go 3.2 miles to Found Lake Rd. Turn Left/East and follow 1.3 miles to the Shannon Lake Trailhead. It is well marked and has good parking space.
