Scenic View Trail 12/15/2013

New Arctic Cat 1/22/2014 

We are  opening on Friday, 28 November for the 2014/2015 season. 10-12" of new snow fell yesterday into today.  New this season is miscellaneous grooming machinery for classic and skate skiing, and "Fat Bikes" for use only on the 8 km Monument (snowshoe) Trail.  

We will offer our rental gear for sale at a range of $150-350 (ski equipment) and $50-150 (snowshoes) depending on models of the boots, skis, poles, and snowshoes.  (Ask for Hans) 

When snowshoeing on the trails groomed for skiing we ask the snowshoers to stay on the edge of the trail to avoid damaging the groomed tracks. No hiking is allowed on the groomed ski trails, but dogs are allowed for skijoring.  We ask the skier to keep the dog out of the tracks.  Dogs must be on a leash in the park at all times.  (Feel free to share photos by emailing us at hpk@warwick.net. The Cedar Swamp Trail is recommended for beginner skierss, the Scenic View Trail has more rolling terrain to challenge the more experienced skier, and the Steeny Kill Trail offers a longer back-country ski experience with the most change in elevation.  Wildlife sightings are most likely on the Cedar Swamp Trail. The ultimate view of NJ, PA, and NY is from the Monument Trail on snowshoes or Scenic View Trail on skis. Check back for condition updates. 

We put down a lot more wood chips this summer and fall to be able to operate with minimal amounts of snow.  (Save this web page in your favorites to see trail report updates in the morning or at night depending on what "Mother Nature" sends our way.) Click to see" video from last season when all of our trails had super conditions.
