City Forest

Warm up by the gas log fireplace, enjoy a drink and snack and watch the outdoor fun from the large picture window. The chalet is open during winter hours of operation and has restrooms and snack bar for guests. The sledding hill is lighted and available for sledding (at your own risk) daily from 8 a.m. - 10 p.m. The hill is supervised by staff during listed hours of winter operation. Sleds are available for rental. The City Forest features four snow-packed and iced, elevated toboggan runs. The toboggan runs are dependent on weather and are open during hours of operation only. Please call the chalet to confirm that the toboggan runs are operating. Toboggans can be rented. For your ice skating pleasure a natural outdoor ice rink is available for use outside of the chalet. The rink is lit daily from 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. and skates can be rented at the chalet (during hours of operation). Groomed trails (for classic and skate skiing) are marked from beginners to an advanced 11k loop. A 1k (.6 miles) beginner trail is lighted from dusk to 8 p.m. Maps are available on the city’s web site or on-site. During hours of operation, skis, boots and poles can be rented. The miles of marked trails are a great place for a nature hike or jog. Eight miles are available for mountain biking trails with steep hills, twists and turns.
