McMiller Sports Center Biathlon Range


The McMiller Park biathlon range area consists of an 8-point range with metal biathlon targets, indoor warming shelter, and 3 km of ski trails.

Location

The McMiller Park biathlon range is located in Eagle, Wisconsin at the McMiller Park Sports Center, part of the Kettle Moraine State Forest-Southern Unit. A vehicle admission sticker and state trail pass (for those over age 16) is required for individuals using the trails and biathlon range at McMiller Park. For additional information about park fees, please visit the Wisconsin State Parks website. Get directions to McMiller Park.


Biathlon Range Access

The biathlon range at the McMiller Sports Center should be accessed only from the ski trail. DO NOT USE THE GRAVEL SERVICE ROAD! Users of the adjacent novice trap range cannot see individuals wandering up and down the service road, which could lead to a possibly hazardous situation. View map for correct range access.


Range Use

The biathlon range is for use only by Wisconsin Biathlon Association members who are biathlon safety certified. For more information about membership requirements, vist the membership page. During the "off-season" (no snow), the biathlon range is available for use only during scheduled club practice times. See the event calendar for more information. During the winter season when the trails are snow covered and open for skiing, the biathlon range is available for use by certified members during daylight hours.


Biathlon Trail

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.
