Stopped by here for an evening walk and was super delighted by this little gem. This is a multi-use area, which is set up for skiing and hiking. There's a sliding hill that seems like it would be super awesome in the winter, and about 5 miles of winding, wide trails that cut through the beautiful aspens. When I went through, there was not another soul to be found, so I had the whole park to myself. Mind the hills! There are a LOT!

We were only 3 thankfully because it was a busy day. The hill is mostly smooth. A few bumps here and there. My 1st experience here, so maybe the bumps were for an added thrill.

I have been sledding at Shingnobee Hill many times and it is very fun but also rather dangerous. I have seen many people get hurt while sledding (mainly broken noses). I would not recommend Shingnobee Hill to anyone going with children younger than 10. Personally I enjoyed sledding at Shingnobee but it isn’t the best for little kids

Beautiful hiking trail, but more prairie than woods so it got hot even when it was only 70 degrees. Lots of ticks--we must have pulled 15 off of us plus at least that many off the dog! There were many options for routes, so take a picture of the map because the trackside maps were too worn to read. We were here in the summer, so had to imagine sledding, which is at your own risk--it would be thrilling and would only require one or maybe two trips down the hill because the walk back up would be exhausting! What appears to be a warming house is at the bottom near the public restrooms, which were open and clean enough.

There is a great sledding hill and provides a lot of fun and winter exercise. Be sure to be careful. I have personally gotten pretty injured on this hill.
