Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

Areas west of Cheyenne provide miles and miles of trails for Nordic sports and snowshoeing. In the wintertime, hiking trails become a wonderland for tubing, sledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. This natural treasure provides accessible, fun family adventure, most of which can be had free of charge!

Daily grooming of the trails at the Happy Jack Recreation Area provides an optimized experience for cross country skiers. Additional trails in the area are perfect to wander off on a snow hike with your snowshoes. Walk quietly and immerse yourself in the magic of the forest covered in snow.
