Joliet Nordic Ski Club Celebrating 28 years of promoting cross country skiing
Woodruff Golf Course, Joliet, IL
The club grooms a ski trail for both classic and skate techniques when conditions permit. The trail is on slightly rolling terrain and about 4+k loop depending on snow conditions. The Park District Club house is open some weekends which offers refreshments, food, restrooms and fireplace to relax inside and visit with others. Club is not part of the Joliet Park District.
Trail is open for skiing daily when conditions allow.
Please don't walk on the groomed trail. That shoe impression (deeper than a ski impression) allows the sun to start deteriorating the trail sooner than normal.
