For Your Safety!

Skiers should be aware that not all trails are groomed and that the trails that are groomed cannot always be groomed on a regular basis. The quality of the groomed trails also varies depending upon available equipment. Even the best groomed trails can be quickly destroyed by heavy traffic.

Skiers should not ski beyond their abilities by taking more advanced/difficult trails or allowing speed to build up beyond their ability to control their descent. Always leave space between you and other skiers and alert others when passing. If you have questions on trail difficulty, talk to office personnel prior to starting your skiing tour.

General Trail Information: Horses are not allowed within County Parks. They are allowed on County Forest property unless otherwise posted. No horses are allowed on the groomed ski trails at Richfield 360. Dogs are allowed on trails if leashed, except for winter groomed trails. No foot traffic (humans or animals) are allowed on winter groomed trails. Trail passes are good for all fee area trails. These include: Richfield 360 winter groomed trails; Powers Bluff single-track (year round), and multi-use (winter groomed); Nepco ski trail (winter groomed). All other trails are free.
