Peavine Swamp Ski Trail is an 8.5-mile ski trail located in the Western parcel of the Cranberry Lake Wild Forest.
This trail begins on the south side of Route 3 east of Peavine Swamp. It presently contains three loops. The last half of the trail passes through lands that have never been significantly harvested. Large specimens of hardwoods, red spruce, and eastern hemlock are common.
The Cranberry Lake Wild Forest is a 24,111-acre forest that consists of three separate parcels to the west, northwest, and east of Cranberry Lake. It contains 15 miles of foot trails, 9.4 miles of snowmobile trails, 8.5 miles of ski trails, and two Adirondack lean-tos. Generally, the trails in this forest are more easily traversed than those in the wilderness to the south.
Featured trails are recommended by DEC.
