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.
