Nordic Skiing

Cherry Hill maintains a trail network of over 1.25 miles that loops throughout virtually the entire course, with access at the north end of the course to trails that connect to town Conservation land beyond the solar farm that is currently being constructed. Grooming takes place in the morning when conditions allow.

The ARHS Nordic Ski team (who just placed 11th in the state meet!) uses Cherry Hill as a practice facility when conditions allow.

A large group of local residents that go by the name Amherst Nordic Skiing also utilize the trails.

Showshoeing

This activity is often seen at Cherry Hill in the winter. We encourage those who snowshoe to stay off the groomed ski trails as much as possible.
