Great fun for the whole family…

The new tubing hill at Wirth Park features a riding hill designed especially for family fun, with a tow rope to bring tubers back up to the top of the hill. You bring the warm clothes, we provide the rest.

New this year is a Kiddie Hill for all to enjoy! Younger riders may experience tubing accompanied by an adult on our Kiddie Hill!

Your tubing adventure will start at The Trailhead. Parking is available at the site of the new Trailhead building with more parking available at the Wirth Chalet.
