Cross Country Ski Trail at Wilmette Golf Club

Bring on the snow! On Feb. 3, 2015, the Wilmette Park District opened a groomed cross country ski trail at the Wilmette Golf Club. The 5K trail, a first for the Park District, loops through the 106 acre golf course, located at 3900 Fairway Drive in Wilmette.

The trail begins at the golf starter’s hut at the 1st tee. Cross country skiers are asked to stay on the groomed trails which have been designed to protect the golf course. The trail is free and opened to the general public during daylight hours. Parking is available in the golf course lot.

At this time the Park District is not offering cross country ski lessons or ski rentals.
