Pigeon Creek Park trails are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. When cross-country skiing and sledding conditions are satisfactory, the park and trails will remain open until 10 p.m.

Pigeon Creek Park offers about 10 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails, including three miles of lighted ski trails and lighted sledding hills. Hiking and dogs are not allowed on snow covered trails.

The newly-renovated Pigeon Creek Lodge provides cross-country ski and snowshoe rental, a food and beverage concession, and a place to get warm. Lodge hours are Monday through Thursday, 4-8 p.m.; Fridays from 1-10 p.m.; Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

During the holidays, the Pigeon Creek Lodge will be open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. beginning Dec. 26 through Jan. 1. The Lodge will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It is only open when cross-country skiing and sledding conditions are satisfactory. 

Call the park's 24-hour hotline at 616-738-9531 for up-to-date skiing and sledding conditions and Lodge hours. 

Pigeon Creek Park is located in Olive Township on Stanton Street between 128th and 120th avenues.
