ARE THE TRAILS NEARBY?
You bet! Our little shop is located 100m from the river valley and associated trail network and a short 2min drive from the Nordic Ski area.
You can hike, snowshoe, or ride your bike to the trails from our parking lot, and you can be on the ski trails within 5 min of leaving our shop.
The biking, hiking and walking trails in Devon have trail-head signs at most of the trail entrances. For a better view, be sure to download the Trailforks App on your phone.
The Cross-Country Ski Trails are built and maintained by the Devon Nordic Ski Club. They groom and track-set on the Devon Golf Course and Lions Campground. The Golf Course tracks are for Skiing only (no bikes, hiking, snowshoeing). The DNSC is a non-profit organization and the trails are maintained by volunteers. There's no fee to use the ski area, but you can help keep the trails in good shape by popping a couple bucks in the donation box at the entrance of the ski area. For trail info and up to date condition report, head to the DNSC face book page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/devonnordic
