Cross Country Skiing Trails

In addition to many other popular winter sports, Cadillac is a great destination for cross country skiing. Four trail systems offer over sixty miles of groomed trails available in the area. Many trail systems for Nordic skiers are privately owned or part of downhill ski resorts. The Cadillac area is fortunate enough to have four ski areas where groups of volunteers are dedicated to maintaining and grooming trails. All trails are free of charge, though each has a slotted pipe where donations can be left.  

See listing below of the groomed and backcountry trails available. Check trail reports before heading out to prepare for a great day in our winter wonderland.

Heritage Trail/Carl T Johnson grooming report can be obtained by calling the MDNR at Mitchell State Park 231-775-7911.
