  • The Village of Roscommon, due to its geographical location, has many recreational opportunities including canoeing, hunting, fishing, boating, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snow-shoe trails, nature walking, bird watching, cycling, camping, hiking, nearby ice fishing, ORV trails, and other outdoor sports. Roscommon is also home to many annual festivals and events, celebrating our beauty and culture. Although the Village’s local population is small, it provides visitors with a wide array of activities, beauty and relaxation.

Come revel in Pure Michigan’s coolest season on the nationally recognized cross country ski trails of Cross Country Ski Headquarters. We offer more than 12 miles (19 km) of trails for all abilities, “Ginzu” groomed every morning with the same groomer used in the 2002 Olympics. Glide on freshly set tracks, or skate on freshly packed corduroy lanes. On weekends, visit Trappers Cabin, just one mile from the trailhead, to warm by the fire and enjoy a snack or refreshment.
