Trail Snow Report

Gooseberry Falls State Park

Trail conditions:

Late last week we reworked the ski trails by flattening and widening them. This also broke up the hard top layer of snow and overall softened trail. The groomer was out on Sunday (1/13)setting new track. The best trails to ski are the trails on the Lake Superior of Hwy 61 and the shared skate/classic trail west of the Gooseberry River. As a friendly reminder there are no fat bike trails at Gooseberry. Both Split Rock Lighthouse State Park and the Demonstration Forest near Two Harbors offer excellent fat bike trails.
