The Wanoga Sno-Park ski and snowshoe loop is a perfect place for beginners to practice or for veterans who want to take some laps around the trail with the dog. For the skiers, the groomed trail weaves in and out of an open meadow of lodgepole pines, is almost entirely flat, and is composed of an inner and outer loop that total 2 miles. There is a short 1-mile loop for snowshoers, but the tight grouping of pines and firs along this loop limits the scenery.

The Wanoga trail system is one of several networks that were built with dog-friendly winter recreation in mind. DogPAC, whose mission is to promote the health and enjoyment of dogs and their guardians through the provision of off-leash recreation opportunities in Central Oregon, maintains the trails with the help of volunteers and donations that support trail maintenance. You can learn more about DogPAC at their website.

You have to mention Dogpac if you're talking about Wanoga! They made these trails happen, the ski and snowshoe trails were constructed specifically for dog owners to have a place to take their dogs off-leash. Dogpac owns the trails and all grooming and trail maintenance is done by donation and volunteer work. Glad you enjoyed it! http://www.dogpac.org/
