Winter, in it’s perfect stillness, is truly the best time to experience this snow-laden forest of “Narnia.” COOK FOREST attracts tree lovers from near and far. It’s trees have been almost untouched since it’s birth in 1644
after a wildfire. The preservation of the forest is largely attributed to the Cook family, whose efforts have saved more than 6,000 acres.

You can enjoy this ancient forest on nearly 52 miles of hiking trails. Each of the marked trails offers a unique outdoor experience. There are also three acres of sledding slopes and scenic cross-country ski trails in the park.

It’s time to explore Cook Forest’s wintry wonderland.
You won’t be disappointed!
