Flambeau Hills Ski Trail


Annual cross-country skiing at night by candlelight beginning at the Flambeau Hills Trailhead. A 1.8 kilometer loop of trail will be groomed, tracked, and lit with over 600 candles. The trail is for skiers or hikers and winds through the heart of the forest. The trail is wide enough for diagonal striders and skate skiers. Picnic tables and a large barbecue grill will be available near the trailhead for persons who wish to cook out. Large warming fires will also be built and maintained throughout the night. The forest staff promotes this as a casual family-type outing and hopes that families and friends come and spend the evening with them. The candles should provide a luminescent atmosphere for all to enjoy. Starting at 5 p.m. that Saturday, all day-use fees at the trailhead will be waived. The Flambeau Hills Trailhead is located on County Hwy. W 20 miles west of Phillips or 15 miles east of Winter. This event will take place regardless of snow conditions.
