Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Grand Portage State Park

Trail conditions:

We still have a lot of snow, with an average of about 18 to 24 inches of snow depth in the park. Warm days and cold nights are making the park trails icy and slushy. The use of traction devices for footwear is highly recommended. Grand Portage State Park does not have any snowmobile or ski trails. Visitors are welcome to snowshoe anywhere in the park. The paved portion of the High Falls Trail is maintained as a winter walking trail. As such, snow is cleared from the paved portion of the trail typically within 24 hours of a snow event. The Picnic Trail is a wide, flat and easy trail with multiple views of the Pigeon River. The Middle Falls Trail has steep, rugged terrain and should only be attempted by advanced snowshoers.

The trail(s):
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.
