Remember the thrill of an afternoon at the local sledding hill? Even when your cheeks turned rosy and your toes went numb, you wanted just one more trip down the hill. It’s easy to feel like a kid again in Three Rivers, where you'll find some of the best sledding hills in town. Just bundle up and grab a sled, or rent one from a nature center, for hours of exhilarating fun!
Rules and Guidelines
Sledding hills are unsupervised. Children should be accompanied by an adult. Skiing and snowboarding are not allowed on sledding hills. Hills will close when the conditions are poor or during extremely cold temperatures. Most hills are located near a park facility with restrooms and concessions.
Other things to do
If you like sledding, you’ll love snow tubing. Ride a moving sidewalk up a hill 10 stories high and then soar back down on a specially designed inner tube. Once you get to the bottom, do it all over again. Tubers of all ages will have a blast speeding down the chutes.
Downhill and Telemark Skiing
Hyland Hills Ski Area and the Winter Recreation Area at Elm Creek offer downhill ski areas for all skill levels, from training hills to Olympic-level training jumps. The downhill ski areas feature snowmaking and well-groomed hills for unbeatable winter fun.
Create new memories at our play areas. Three Rivers has multiple areas designed for varying ages and abilities where toddlers to teens can let their imagination run wild. Monkey business never sounded so fun.
One of the best ways to explore year-round is to head out for a hike on the extensive trail system in Three Rivers. Trails wind through the woodland, grassland and wetland habitats of many species of wildlife. You’ll be amazed at what you might see along the way.
