Two of our area cross country ski trails have similar names; Big Ridge and Big Aspen.
Big Ridge is south of Pengilly just off Hwy. 65, and has 10k of classic skiing on three loops through a variety of forest.
Big Aspen is just North of Virginia just off Hwy. 53 and offers 32k of classic trails. Both trails systems are a great place to get out anytime of year, but in the winter they cater to the cross country skier.
With the low snow we have had so far this year, I recommend not using your good skis just yet. However, they are both very skiable. Both have been packed by groomers, but neither trail system has been tracked. Hopefully that will be coming with the next good snowfall.
Big Ridge, note the logging in the area, is on the left and Big Aspen is on the right.
