f you do, you may have the Central Oregon Nordic Club to thank for the 5,000 hours of trail and shelter work they've done over the past year, getting those trails ready for winter fun.

According to CONC member Linda Frost, the group maintains 79 miles of snowshoe trails and 125 miles of ski trails —the largest system of marked and maintained backcountry trails in Oregon.

The Central Oregon snowshoe trail system, meanwhile, is the only marked, maintained system of snowshoe trails in Oregon. The group also maintains six backcountry warming shelters including Swampy Lakes, Nordeen, Shooting Star, Swede Ridge, Edison and AC-DC, as well as maintaining firewood supplies in the shelters when needed. Last year, the group rebuilt the Swampy Lakes shelter after gathering $35,000 in donations.

What's new this year?

A new numbering system at the trail intersections, and new maps for the Meissner and Swampy Nordic trails. See them below, and when you're out there having fun, consider sending a thank you to the Central Oregon Nordic Club for their work!
