Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions
Hayes Lake State Park
With snow getting a little deeper, hiking is going to get a little more difficult. But we still have our miles of hiking trails for snow shoeing or break your own trail, cross country skiing. Ice Fishing is available on Hayes Lake as well. Ice thickness has been reported to be in very good condition. As always, be cautious, especially around the dam area.
Scenic views are numerous. The land is generally flat, except ridges and river valleys formed by glacial activity. Because this park and trail system is up in the far northern regions of the state, more of Minnesota's less common wildlife are sighted. Mink, bobcat, lynx and timber wolves may be seen.
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.
- Winter camping in not available.
