The trail is a cross between prairie and woodlands. With steeply rolling hills, interspersed with marshlands, numerous small lakes and aspen willow wetlands. While skiing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling through the park you will experience excellent hilltop vistas along with lowland areas. You will encounter numerous wildlife including deer, fox, coyotes, rabbits and chipmunks. Ski 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.
- There is an open sided shelter building with fire pit.
- Ski passes are not required.
- Four year-around camper cabins are available to rent Thursday night through Sunday night during the winter season. Reservations can be made at stayatmnparks.com or 1-866-857-2757. The campgrounds are closed to winter camping. Please call Lake Carlos State Park for more information (320) 852-7200.
