This map shows parking areas, features and trails for spring, summer, and fall seasons. Visitors can enjoy hiking, mountain bike, and equestrian trails during this time.

Over ten miles of ski trails and snowshoe trails wind through old pine plantations, mature deciduous forests and through bottomland forests along the Pigeon River. The park is a popular cross country ski destination with groomed trails for both classic and ski skating. Ski trails are groomed, tracked and reset as needed throughout the day. A sledding hill is also provided. Three miles of ski trails and the sledding hill have are illuminated for evening use. The Pigeon Creek Lodge provides ski rental, a food and beverage concession and serves as a warming house. Hiking, dogs, biking, snowshoeing and horseback riding are not allowed on groomed cross country ski trails.

Dog Policy

Dogs are permitted at Pigeon Creek Park except when snow conditions are right for cross country skiing and sledding. From May 1 through September 30, we ask that you take your pet on designated trails only. For the safety and enjoyment of all park guests, pets must be on ten foot leashes and under control. Owners must clean up after their pet and dispose of waste in a trash receptacle. Dogs are not permitted in park buildings, restrooms, picnic shelters, or as posted. Leader dogs for persons with disabilities are permitted in all areas at all times. Recognizing that most dogs enjoy running and playing freely, Ottawa County Open Space Lands allow dogs year-round off leash.
