The trail(s):
The trails offer rolling, wooded terrain and a one mile prairie loop. Winter is a great time for birding and tracking. Look for winter birds including wild turkeys, red-bellied woodpeckers, and ring-necked pheasants. Deer, fox, squirrel, and other mammal tracks are often observed along the trails.
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.

Facilities:

  • A warming area is located in the visitor center and open during regular office hours.
  • Snowshoes are available for rent in the visitor center for $6 per pair.
