Last night we scuffed up the top surface of all the ski trails. We did not set any tracks. It's solid ice underneath the top layer of snow to set tracks.

  • Condition: Poor
  • Base: 1 -5
  • Groomed: No

The latest snowstorm passed us by, leaving only freezing rain and sleet. Cross country skiers and snowshoers are welcome to check out Janesville's parks, trails and greenbelts. Volunteers groom trails at Rockport Park and Riverside Golf Course as time allows after we have 6" of snow. Riverside has three groomed trails, about 1 mile each (one cross country, one skate skiing and a walking trail). Rockport Park offers Janesville's most extensive cross country skiing with over 6 miles of diverse trails, color coded for your enjoyment. Trails at Riverside Golf Course may be groomed as volunteers are available. Parking is available in the golf course parking lot with access to the trails on the west side of the building. Although these are the only groomed trails, cross-country skiing is allowed in any city park and our 500 acre greenbelt system. Cross country ski (and snowshoe) equipment is available for rent. Deposits are required and held until the equipment is returned on time and in acceptable condition. Reserve early as sizes are limited and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Rock County Parks also offer cross country skiing options. Gibbs Lake and Carver-Roehl are suitable for beginner and intermediate skiers, and Magnolia Bluff is best for experts. Contact Rock County at 608-757-5450. www.ci.janesville.wi.us/index.aspx?page=218

Update 2/4/2016 **1:00pm - Skate lanes are done on all of the trails. Snow conditions were not cooperating for setting track so far today. We will try again later today and into tomorrow for track setting. Look to Friday for completion of all of the trails. Join us on Saturday Feb. 6 from 6-8pm for our next Candlelight Ski, Hike and Snowshoe! Currently, loggers are working in the Hastings Trail block on the scheduled timber harvest and will be working into the winter. At this time we are not planning to groom the Hastings Trail this winter due to the harvest and follow-up trail condition work that will need to be done in the Spring. Starting this winter (2015-16), Mirror Lake State Park will begin requiring a State Trail Pass for our cross-country ski trails. This is the same pass that can be used at Blue Mound, Lapham Peak and many other state trails, which many skiers already have and on the State bike trails in the non-snow season. www.wiparks.net
