Open year-round except the southern 2½ miles of the trail (Taylor County) are closed from September 1 through December 31 so the private landowner is able to hunt on his property; during this time follow Hwy. C to the north parking area.

This 10-mile non-motorized trail welcomes hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders (May 1 through November 15), skijoring, snowshoers and cross-country skiers, groomed for both classic and skate.

At the south end (near Rib Lake), the first 2 miles of the trail start out fairly flat and are great for beginners and families. The next 5.5 miles get progressively hillier and offer more of a challenge for the intermediate to advanced skier.

The trail passes through a wide variety of forest types including regrowth of aspen clear cuts, pine plantation, hemlock, cedar groves and towering hardwood stands. Part of the trail follows a 19th century logging road that connected the early logging camps and passes a 20’x300’ long sleigh cut that was used to transport the timber to the mill in Rib Lake.

Many glacial features are highlighted by a section between Hultman and Stone lakes where the trail follows the top of an esker that is over ¼-mile long and 60’ high. This trail connects the High Point Trail in Timm's Hill County Park to the Rib Lake Area Ski Trails. It also intersects the National Ice Age Trail.

Dogs are welcome but they must be on a leash or under control at all times.

You can camp along the trail in the Price County Forest by submitting a Dispersed Camping Permit.
