Cleary Lake Winter Trailhead
When the snow falls, Cleary Lake Golf Course becomes the Cleary Lake Winter Trailhead. Glide along cross-country ski trails, head out for a winter hike or take your pup for a stroll on a dog trail. Rent skis and warm up with snacks and beverages at the visitor center.
Things To Do
Six miles of trails
Cleary Lake Regional Park has cross-country ski trails for all skill levels. Trails wind through rolling hills and hardwood forests. The Golf Course Loop trail is shared with skijorers and snowshoers.
3.8 miles of trails
Walk your dog on miles of trails that wind through the park. Dogs are allowed on paved and turf trails with a six-foot, non-retractable leash. Owners must pick up after their dog.
Get your blood pumping with a brisk walk. A trail with rest stops and a water pump loops around Cleary Lake. The trail has connections leading to the Scott West Regional Trail for east and west connections from the park.
