  • The road and parking area at Shady Rest Park are plowed throughout the winter as a staging area and trailhead for Snowmobilers and cross-country skiers, providing acres of open space for safe and simple snow play, especially with younger kids. The area is basically flat, which offers nearly limitless terrain for building snow people and forts with easy access to town.
