The information posted here is subject to change without notice.
Cross-Country Skiing is permitted on most trails in the Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey. About 5 miles of designated cross-country ski trails of various lengths and difficulty are at State Line Lookout. These ski trails, marked A–F, are marked and maintained but not groomed. Skiers are advised to wait for at least 4 inches of snow before using the trails. We do not offer ski rentals.

Skiers can also use our hiking trails. Please note that many of these trails are steep or rocky, so skiers are strongly cautioned to scout out all trails by foot before attempting to ski them.
A note on winter use: State Line Lookout and Lookout Inn may be closed during a significant weather event. When a barrier has been put in place by the Parkway Police on any roadway, including the access road to the Lookout area, the roadway beyond that barrier is to be considered closed for all use. Those going beyond such a barrier are subject to summonses. The State Line area will be plowed and open for cross-country skiing after the Parkway and other critical park roads have been completely cleared and deemed safe by the Parkway Police. Visitors can expect the area to be open for skiing within 24 hours of the end of a typical storm event.
