Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Split Rock Lighthouse State Park

Trail conditions:

Our trails currently have no base, but we had our first significant snowfall of the year and we have about 7 inches of snow on the ground throughout the park. The trails are not groomed yet, but they are packed down with a roller to create a firmer surface. All trails are multi-use - you can ski on them, but you can also hike, snowshoe, and fat tire bike, and dogs are allowed. No snowmobiling is allowed in the park.

Trail conditions: fair
Trail groomed? no
Trail base: 0"
Trail mileage: 0

The trail(s):
8.2 miles of groomed snowshoe/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. 12 miles of ungroomed trail for hiking.
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.


  • Restrooms are available at the Trail Center.
  • Winter camping is available at the cart-in campground and backpack-in sites. All winter camping sites are ski-in or snowshoe-in. Park in the Pebble Beach lot; the main campground parking area is not plowed in the winter.
