Leaf Lake Ski Trail offers a wide variety of trails ranging in length from 5 to 51 km that range from easy to very difficult. The system includes three loops that are groomed for skate skiing. All trails are groomed, and many are track set. Outdoor privies are located on many loops, and at cabins.

The Minnesing Wilderness Ski Trail has three loops ranging in distance from 4.7 to 23.4 km. The trail is maintained for backcountry wilderness skiing and is not groomed. Wide touring skis and large basket poles are essential for soft snow conditions. A privy is located on each loop of the trail and at the Minnesing cabin.
