Trail Snow Report

Hayes Lake State Park

Trail conditions:

With April here, the snowmobile season has ended in the park and the trail gates have been closed. Large patches of exposed ground are in abundance after recent warm stretches. What snow pack remains is a hollow, icy crust. Due to this, the ski trails are also out of commission for the spring. Thanks to all the guests who came out to enjoy the trails in the park this year, and thanks also to the Friends of Hayes Lake State Park group and the Minnesota Parks and Trails Council for keeping our ski trails groomed.

The trail(s):
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.
