Snow has arrived, and Ann Arbor Family Press has compiled a list of the area’s best sledding hills. Bundle up, and remember to identify safe sledding paths before heading down the hill.

Leslie Park

Dhu Varren Rd

This location offers a hill with a view! Leslie Park features a sledding hill overlooking the golf course and easy parking. Check out the hills at the nearby Leslie Science & Nature Center as well for a variety of sledding runs.

Rolling Hills County Park

7660 Stony Creek Rd, Ypsilanti

Thrill seekers will enjoy the 275 foot long hill located behind the Lodge building. The hill has a large flat area at the bottom and fenced return paths on either side so you can safely climb back up. Parking, restrooms, inner tube rentals, and a warming space make this hill an easy choice!

Mushroom Park

1800 Waltham Dr

Featuring a number of small berms, or hills, this park is a lovely location for younger children who want a more gentle sledding experience.

Veterans Memorial Park

2150 Jackson Rd

A much-beloved Ann Arbor sledding favorite, Veterans Memorial Park features a large hill with two different sled runs down. This is a fast hill and best for bigger kids.

Buhr Park

2751 Packard Rd

This park has many hills to choose from and is known for a long, mellow hill perfect for little ones.

Huron Hills Golf Course

3465 E Huron River Dr

Sometimes referred to lovingly as “the mother of all sledding hills”, Huron Hills Golf Course features a few large hills. One ends with a sand trap that the most adventurous use to launch themselves into the air.

Ypsilanti Community High School

2095 Packard Rd

The large sledding hill at the high school features a wide area making it easier to stay safe walking back up the hill.
