Escanaba is groomed and tracked in the winter for cross-country skiing. For skiers, this is an intermediate trail. A shelter with fire ring is located on the trail. Restrooms are located near the trail head. Leashed pets are allowed on this trail only when there is no snow on the ground. A daily or annual state trail pass is required for skiing only.
