Located at 2840 East Monroe, mile west of Eastman. City Forest is comprised of 520 acres of hardwoods and pines and is perfect for year-round outdoor activities. During the winter, City Forest is best known for its four iced toboggan runs, cross country ski trails, outdoor skating rink and a large sled hill available for public use. The toboggan runs are available for use during winter hours of operation (weather permitting). The sled hill is available for sledding at your own risk and is lighted for night use. Sorry, no steel runner sleds or snow boards are allowed. The forest provides 11 kilometers of groomed trails perfect for cross country skiing or snowshoeing. Trails range from beginner to advanced levels. Visitors can complete their winter trip to the Forest with a snack and a cup of hot chocolate in the chalet during hours of operation. Once the snow melts, the fun doesn't stop at City Forest. The chalet is available for rental from April 15 through October 15. The forest itself becomes a popular area for nature lovers. The many miles of cross country ski trails are a great place for a nature hike or jog. In addition, there are thirteen miles of mountain biking trails that are open year round. With plenty of steep hills, twists and turns, these trails provide an exciting ride even for experienced riders. There is also a mountain biking skills development area available for riders to hone their mountain biking abilities.
