Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Gooseberry Falls State Park

Trail conditions:

Light snow showers this week left a light coat of fresh snow over a firm icy base. Strong winds also left light debris on the trails. The fresh snow partially filled in the existing track making for fair skiing. There are locations where cover is thin. Hills are a bit tricky having a firm icy base covered with a thin layer of fresh snow. The snowmobile trail is firm with thin cover in spots. The trail is partially groomed from the trailhead in the parking lot to the where the trail crosses Skunk Creek. After the point the trail is single track that is rough riding as a result of frozen snowmobile tracks.
