What to Expect: The Rock Lake Trail is a
narrow classic only ski trail that traverses rolling to hilly
terrain. This trail is suitable for intermediate and advanced
skiers. When snow depths permits, the trail is groomed and track
is set. Downhills are long and twisting but have good run outs.
The two longest loops pass a number of small scenic lakes. The
trail is located in a maple and oak forest that has occassional
stands of large white pine. Uphills are relatively short but numerous
giving the skier a good workout. Forest Road 207 is a snowmobile
trail in the winter. Hiking on the Rock Lake Trail is best in
the short segments between Forest Road 207 and the lakes - Rock
Lake, Frels and Hildebrand Lakes or spring Lake.
