Cross Country Skiing

Members who enjoy winter sports experience wonderful cross-country skiing opportunities at Knollwood Club.

Skiing around the perimeter of the course at the tree line is very enjoyable, offering a different perspective than seen during the summer. 

There are also interesting trails that can be explored. By skiing out the southwest corner of the golf course and directly west through the woods, the trails of the Middlefork Savannah can be accessed. In recent years, the Lake County Forest Preserve District completed 4 ½ miles of new trails with five new bridges that cross the middle fork of the west branch of the Chicago River. It is possible to hike or ski all the way from IL Route 176 to Highway 60. It’s a beautiful area and can be easily accessed from Knollwood Club.
