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.

3/8/16 - Well with Mother Nature giving us a week of 60 degree days at the beginning of March I think its safe to say it's time to put the groomer away. The snow has left except for a few patches but even those are going fast. Thank you for skiing with us again this winter and we hope to see you next year. 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
