I took my then-13 year old daughter to Goose Creek Campground for her first introduction to Adventure Skate Skiing. From the Sno-park head straight north toward Trinity (what the Forest Service calls Route 2) for 1.1 mile. Along the way you cross a bridge over the Chiwawa River – a great place to stop and gawk either going out or coming back. Reach an intersection 1.1 miles from the Sno-park and turn right. In 100 feet you come to another intersection, and turn right again onto (Forest Service) Route 7. Enjoy the flat trail as it passes through a stand of Douglas Fir until you reach Goose Creek Campground on the right. The campground itself is buried in snow this time of year. You can use the flat trail around the campground to work on your skating technique, before turning around and retracing your tracks back to the car.

Approaching the big intersection 1 mile from the car. Right goes to Goose Creek Campground.
