Jay Cooke State Park

Trail conditions:

All ski trails in the park are no longer being maintained for skiing and are closed for the season. Although you may try to ski, conditions are icy with possible bare ground in spots. Due to the closing of the ski trails all trails are now open to hiking. We suggest ice cleats and a hiking stick during this varied trail condition time. The Ogantz Trail at Oldenburg Point has been closed until next winter.
