The 160-kilometer BCRD Nordic trail system is one of the largest in the United States and offers a grooming season that typically operates from Thanksgiving to mid-April. BCRD has also expanded offerings in the Quigley Trails system, providing the community with over 14 kilometers of groomed terrain in the south valley.
No tax dollars are used to support the majority of the BCRD Nordic trail system, so revenue generated by pass sales and Nordic donations pay for the maintenance and sustainment of the groomed system. You can show your support of our community Nordic trails and Galena Lodge by making a tax-deductible donation and receiving a complimentary Platinum ($250) or Gold ($100) Nordic pin. The tax-supported 20-mile multi-use Wood River Trail is also groomed and offered free to the public.
