Biathlon Range Access
Foot/Vehicle access: The biathlon range at the McMiller Sports Center can be accessed from the narrow gravel road next to the trap range when the gate is open. Look for signs that say, LE (law enforcement) and Biathlon Range between the 300 Yard Range and the Novice Shotgun range. When the LE/Biathlon gate is closed, then access the range from the ski trail, as described below.
Ski access: The biathlon range can be accessed via skiing into the range. If conditions allow, XC skiers may enter the biathlon range via the XC trails. Follow signs on the XC trails to the Biathlon Range starting from the new XC trailhead parking lot at McMiller.
A biathlon-specfic loop has been created at McMiller Park that provides direct access to and from the biathlon range area. Both 1km and 2km loops consist of rolling terrain and is groomed for both classical and skate skiing. McMiller Park also offers five additional ski loops, ranging in length from 3-10 km with varying degrees of difficulty. All trails, including the biathlon loop, begin at the parking lot trailhead behind the warming shelter. A State Parks trail pass is required to ski the trails at McMiller Park.
