Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Hayes Lake State Park

Trail conditions:

The warmer temps have really hit the snow hard. There is bare ground in open areas and the snow in the woods is dropping fast. There is water and slush on top of the ice and it is starting to open up right around the dam. Be very cautious if you try going onto the ice and especially on the ice near the dam.

Trail conditions: fair
Trail groomed? unknown
Trail base: 0"
Trail mileage: 6

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.
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.
