Shindagin Hollow State Forest Cross Country Skiing

The 27th most popular XC Ski in New York.

Near Ithaca, the Shindagin Hollow State Forest has 6 miles of cross country skiing trails.

To reach the cross-country skiing trailhead, take SR79 past Brooktondale. Turn right on West Creek Road and go into Caroline. Turn left on South Road, which comes in at a funny oblique angle. The Shindagin entrance we use is at Gulf Creek road (right turn off of South); it goes by a farm and then connects with some old logging roads in the forest.

Overall, Shindagin Hollow State Forest is the 27th most popular cross country ski area of all 61 Nordic ski destinations in New York.
