The Slippery Elm Trail is not plowed in the winter. When there is snow, it is a great place for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. In other winter fun news… When the pond ice is thick enough at the W.W. Knight Nature Preserve, you can go ice skating. Skates are not provided, but the Park District Rangers will have a sign out when there is sufficient ice for skating. Winter can be a great time to get outdoors. Please remember to dress for the weather and bring a water bottle. The Park District must turn off the water supply to the drinking fountains so the pipes do not freeze. Happy Adventures!
