3-Mile Drive is closed to vehicles but plowed for walkers. Salt is not used - it is harmful to plants. Please watch for ice.
Please, no hiking on ski trails!
A brief reminder:
The Arboretum is a research facility, so plants must remain undisturbed. The trail of even one skier can damage plants.
• Please stay on the groomed trails and follow directional signs.
• Arboretum trails are designed and groomed for traditional skiing only. No skate-skiing.
• Snowmobiling and horseback riding are not allowed on the Arboretum grounds.
• Please do not hike, snowshoe or bring sleds or dogs on ski trails as damage to the trails will result.
• There are separate routes for snowshoeing/hiking.
For your Safety
The Arboretum does not have a ski patrol or staff available to ski to an emergency on the trail. We strongly recommend that you not ski alone. In case of emergency, go to the Oswald Visitor Center Information Desk. The Arboretum requires that you ski during times that the Visitor Center is open. The entry gate is locked at 5:30 p.m. every evening.
Please stay on groomed trails.
