The BREIA (Black River Environmental Improvement Association) Cross-Country Ski Trails are located south of the Village of Boonville. There are approximately 30 miles of groomed, tracked trails. The majority of the trail system is designed for the novice skier, although there are trails for all levels of skiing from novice to expert. There is night skiing on Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm to 9pm at Erwin Park in Boonville.
There are parking areas at the beginning and end of the Canal Trail, off Route 46 near the intersection of Holmes Road, on Domser Road, Potato Hill Road and Echo Lake Road, and three areas along Jackson Hill Road. There are also areas of the town and county roads which have been widened to allow for parking. When parking on the side of the road, park only on one side. For more information see USGS 7.5’ Boonville quadrangle. A brochure with a trail map is also available from BREIA at 11903 Potato Hill Road, Boonville, NY 13309.
