Kincaid Park: x-country ski trails

Kincaid Park is the perfect place to meander on ski trails---- there are SO many of them you will never get bored!

Because of the windy nature of the day, we chose to do the 'munchkin' loop from the Tuesday Night Races series. Kiddos alternated between strollers,

I wanted a Honeycrisp NOT a Pink Lady (apple)

and rolling down hills themselves!

The trees were good wind protection once we were out of the open Chalet area. We went across the bridge (at the right end of the parking lot) and straight down to the trails. After taking the right path, we turned right again and followed the circle back to the parking lot. It was a little over a mile, if my calculations were correct. It was enough for the kiddos in the weather!

The wind picked up at the end as we scurried to cars and abandoned our plans to play at the playground behind the chalet.

So much room to run!

These types of days are hard to call dressing wise--- but layers always seem to be the best and most successful option. We took off layers, put them on and repeated all over again. Never a bad thing to do in this 'shoulder season!'

Fleece, please!
 Directions: Take Raspberry Road west all the way to the end. You will reach a Kincaid Park sign--- keep going through (25 mph or less!) and drive all the way down to the end. You will see a large parking lot by the Chalet. Park on the right side of the lot, cross the wooden bridge, and down to the x-country trails. There are multiple trail maps as you go along. Remember, they are only multi use in the summer/fall. Once the snow hits, they are SKI ONLY.
