Trail Snow Report

Split Rock Lighthouse State Park

Trail conditions:

The eight mile groomed trail is hard packed and slippery considering the freeze/thaw cycle we've had over past weeks. Snowshoes with teeth or Yaktrax over boots work best for hiking along the shore. The scenery is fantastic. Fat bike riders should use caution on the hills.

The trail(s):
Groomed fat bike trails: part of the trail travels along the shoreline of Lake Superior and offers many lake vistas. The terrain is hilly, with a birch and aspen forest.


  • A warming house is located at the Trail Center picnic area.
  • Snowshoe rentals are available
  • Winter camping is available at the cart-in campground as well as at picnic sites closer to the Trail Center building. All winter camping sites are ski-in or snowshoe-in.
