Trail Snow Report

Sakatah Lake State Park

Trail conditions:

We received 6 inches of snow on Monday, January 28th and trails are in good condition for hiking. Watch out for icy patches from the recent warm temperatures. Sakatah will be holding a candlelight hike on Saturday, February 9th from 6 to 9 pm. Come enjoy an evening in the park as you hike or snowshoe our 1 mile or 2 mile trail loops through the forest. When your hike is complete, warm up by the bonfire with roasted marshmallows and hot cocoa.

The trail(s):
The trail is wooded, following along the lakeshore with rolling hills. Wildlife may vary. The park has 5 miles of hiking trails. Approximately 3 miles of the 39-mile-long Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail runs through the park and is available for snowmobiling in the winter.
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.


  • Snowshoeing is permitted anywhere in the park.
