Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Frontenac State Park

Trail conditions:

We were finally able to do our first groom of the season! The Sand Point and Prairie Loops have been groomed, though we were only able to get a base of about 2". The bluff ski trails will remain ungroomed for the foreseeable future, due to construction happening in the campground and hazard tree removal in the campground and picnic areas.

Trail conditions: good
Trail groomed? partially
Trail base: 2"
Trail mileage: 9
Difficulty: intermediate (track)  

The trail(s):
Trails vary from flat, wooded, open prairie to steep ravines.
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.


  • Warming house and Picnic Shelter are open to use.
  • Ski passes are sold at the park office and at the self-registration kiosk.
  • Snowshoe rentals available at park office. Self-registration options are available when the office is closed.
