Brown's Creek Nature Preserve Ski Trail
The City of Stillwater and the Stillwater Cross Country Ski Association have been working together to provide some spectacular cross country ski trails in the Brown's Creek Nature Preserve Area located on the corner of McKusick Road and Neal Avenue. These trails are a multi use trail open to hikers and cross country skiers. Please be considerate when hiking and walk along the side of the trail so as not to disrupt the groomed trail, thank you. The trails are groomed about every other day depending on snow amounts and conditions.
Do you like the outdoors? Are you looking for a way to get involved in the community? Participating in the Adopt-a-Trail Program is a way to give back to the places you love. Individuals, businesses or families can breathe in the fresh air while helping to make sure local trails are inviting and safe. Your love for the environment will make a positive impact in the community and be rewarding at the same time.
We encourage families, scout troops, youth groups, schools, special interest groups, businesses and individuals to get involved. Many of our trails are waiting to be adopted by you or your group. Volunteers can help keep the trails free of unsightly litter, monitor conditions, and perform routine maintenance and other projects.
Adopt-a-Trail Program is a fun, educational volunteer program designed to give the public an opportunity to be involved in preserving and improving the quality of our trails. Your volunteer efforts on our trails increases public awareness of the importance of conserving and protecting our natural resources, generated pride in our park system and demonstrates your commitment to your community.
You or your group can adopt a trail or a portion of a trail by providing a variety of services at least 4 times a year over a two-year period. If you don't have the time to commit to a long-term adoption, the program also encourages one time clean-up projects, seasonal weeding or raking and often sponsors special projects such as planting and trail clean up. Contact the Parks Department at (651) 430-8837 to adopt a trail. Your efforts will be appreciated.
