During the winter season, CCR prepares a Winter Recreation Trail – conditions permitting.  CCR Members, Arrowhead homeowners and their accompanied guests may enjoy using this trail for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and walking the dog.  CCR requests that all snowshoers and walkers refrain from using the set cross-country ski lanes to avoid damaging them. Bikes of any type are not allowed on the track at any time.  Dogs are welcome to walk and play on the golf course during the winter with the provision that you pick up after your dog.
