Cross Country Skiing is available at Spooky Brook Golf Course (732 873-2242) 8am-4pm, 582 Elizabeth Avenue, Somerset, and on the trails of the Environmental Education Center at 190 Lord Stirling Road in Basking Ridge (908 766-2489) daily from 9am-5pm . Skiers are not permitted to go solo, so it is important to bring a friend or family member to share the enjoyment of the great outdoors. Please call the phone numbers listed next to each facility for additional information.


The Environmental Education Center has several miles of trails suitable for cross-country skiing when weather conditions permit. The trails are mostly level and wide, making this beautifully rustic area particularly suitable for beginners or novice skiers. Please bring you own ski equipment. Our facility is open every day from 9am-5pm (except on holidays). No single skiers allowed, so please come with a partner or friends. Skiing is only allowed when there is more than four inches of snow on the trails and only on those areas identified for skiing.
