Winter Fun in Jackson County

While we might not be the biggest fans of the cold, we are definitely looking forward to all the fun winter activities that Jackson County offers.

From exploring the many trails throughout the county (snowshoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, or fat tire biking, anyone?!?) to hitting the best sledding hills in the area, there are lots of great ways to enjoy winter in Jackson County!

We did a little asking around and found out that the best trails for snowshoeing are at the Dahlem Center, the best cross-country skiing trail is Falling Waters, and the trails at the Waterloo Recreation Area are perfect for fat tire biking in the snow.

And for downhill fun, don’t miss out on sledding at Cascades Park or on Mount Beebe in Spring Arbor.
