With snow staying white and deep all winter, McGrath is a winter wonderland for Nordic activities. From a relaxing walk to an intensive sport session, Nordic activities are appropriate for all ages and all physical conditions. Thus, we are happy to initiate curious beginners as well as guide adventurous explorers.
Map of Nordic trails
Biathlon Trail (4 mile single trip): skating trail that leads to a shooting range
Riverside Trail: ski and hike trail that follow the Kuskokwim river
Our Nordic center maintains various cross-country ski equipment:
Classic cross-country skis for in-town and other local trails.
Skating skis (only for town)
Take a pair of nordic poles and hike along the riverside trail of the Kuskokwim river. Or grab a pair of snowshoes, cross the river and explore a little bit further!
We work hard on proposing more nordic activities on the Iditarod Trail:
