New Germany State Park

349 Headquarters Lane
Grantsville, MD 21536
301.895.5453 | dnr.maryland.gov/publiclands/pages/western/newgermany.aspx

Winter Activities: Snowshoeing and Cross Country Skiing dependent on natural snowfall.

When snow conditions are right, park staff groom and track the trails for a first class skiing experience. The trails offer a challenge for skiers of all abilities, with a flat, open “turnpike” for beginners, and winding hillside trails for more experienced skiers. New Germany asks that snowshoe users and hikers give priority to skiers by keeping off ski tracks. Skiers should be mindful of their abilities and stay on trails that are appropriate for their skill level.

During the winter months, the lake house warming hut provides a place for winter enthusiasts to relax after a day of playing in the snow. Cross country skis and snow shoes are available for rent. The snack bar features hot and cold drinks, snacks, trail maps and a selection of gift and souvenir items.​
