Cross-Country Ski Trail Now Open for Winter Season
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office has announced that the Viva Naughton Cross-Country Ski Trail has been groomed and is now open for public use. There is no charge to the public for use of the trail.
The 4-mile trail is located at the north end of Lake Viva Naughton and is 18 miles north of Kemmerer. The trail head is located on the east side of Lincoln County Road 233, directly across from the snowmobile trail head parking lot.
The trail is designed for beginning and intermediate cross-country skiers. It crosses a variety of topography, but is primarily flat and easy with some gentle hills. The trail is exclusively for use by cross-country skiers and provides a nice view of the area.
This year an additional area is also being groomed for cross-country skiers’ use. This loop is located at the Fossil Island Golf Course in Kemmerer.
These trails will be groomed once a week, or as the weather dictates. For more information or for free maps which indicate the location of the Viva Naughton loop, contact the Kemmerer Field Office at 312 Highway 189 North in Kemmerer, Wyo.
