Trail shared by Kevin Killingbeck

The Pike Island Winter Running Trail brings you through the interior of the island.

Features Birding · Wildlife

This trail is for winter use only when snow covered.

Description

This trail is available for running in the winter as an alternative to the Main Loop Trail. Because the Main Loop is only open to cross-country skiing in the winter, this can be a pleasant place to enjoy getting out. Even though this trail is a bit shorter, you can still enjoy the gently rolling terrain.
