Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Carley State Park

Trail conditions:

Only a couple of inches of snow on the ground. With temps in the mid-40's to low 50's it continues to melt so do not expect much snow left heading into the weekend. Hiking trails may still have ice in spots and will be very soft in others.

The trail(s):
The trails traverse a wide variety of scenery from valley floors to rock ridges. Deer, turkey and eagles are commonly seen. All trails are ungroomed.
You can snowshoe anywhere in Minnesota's state parks and recreation areas, except on trails that are specifically groomed for another activity, such as skiing or snowmobiling.


  • Snowshoes are available for rental at Whitewater State Park.
  • Winter camping is not available at Carley State Park.
