Many loop trails to choose from most starting above 9,000 feet in elevation.
Each trail is named. The trails starting on the Pole Knoll side are either descriptive or the names of birds and animals. Trails originating from below, near Greer, are numbered. Pamphlets, if available, describing the trails can be found at the sign-in register at each of the trailheads. Most of the trails are 1 to 6 mile loops with 30 miles total.
The trails are signed with Nordic ski symbols:
Green Circle means easy
Blue Square indicates moderately difficult
Black Diamond most difficult
