Spring is trying to break through and temperatures are high, so we're losing our snow base. 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 skiiers, and Magnolia Bluff is best for experts. Contact Rock County at 608-757-5450. www.ci.janesville.wi.us/index.aspx?page=218

12/17/14 - After the snow-eating fog the last couple of days, we only have a couple of small snow piles left along the road. We will have to wait for the next snowfalls. This winter we will be conducting a timber harvest through the area of the Hastings Trail. During the harvest and potentially throughout the cross-country ski season we will not be grooming this trail. We are sorry for the inconvenience for the winter use of this trail but this needed selective harvest will enhance the growth of our forest. If you have any questions please contact the park office. 2015 Wisconsin State Park Stickers and Trail Passes will go on sale Dec. 1st. Remember they make great holiday gifts! www.wiparks.net
