Cross Country Skiing:
Herrington Manor State Park
Garrett County in Maryland gets a lot more snow than Morgantown, so skiing is good here many times when there is no snow at all in town. The park offers 10 miles of trails into the nearby state forest that are beginning to intermediate level. There is also a 5.5 mile trail that runs between Herrington Manor and Swallow Falls State Parks. The park trails are groomed when conditions allow. A concession is open daily with restrooms, fireplace and tables. Snacks, gifts and ski rentals are available.
