Cross Country Trails

Glide through the winter

A number of trails take off from atop King's Hill Pass including Deadman, O'brien Creek, or if you adventure to the top of Pophyry Peak, there is the Mizpah Bowl trail.  At the King's Hill Recreational Site you can access Silvercrest Country Trails, a trail network of various legnths. The ski season in higher elevations can run from November through May. Parking and warming huts are available to the public.
