New snowshoe trails available at Keyes Peak
FLORENCE—Keyes Peak Recreation Area now offers a free snowshoe trail network adjacent to Keyes Peak Ski Hill.
The 1.5 mile trail network contains multiple loops and is signed with the new Chickadee Trail logo signs. To access the Chickadee Trails, take Hwy 70/101 south from Florence for 2.4 miles. Turn left to stay on Hwy 101 for 0.6 mile then turn left at the sign for Keyes Peak Disc Golf Scenic Overview to a plowed parking area. You can also park at the Ski Lodge and walk past the front of the lodge to access the trails to the north.
Volunteers created the new trail network this fall. The trails wind through the tall pines and mixed hardwoods left of the snow tubing run and traverse a small brook. The packed trails are suitable for all snowshoe types.
