Trail Snow Report

Wild River State Park

Trail conditions:

Sunny skies and warm temperatures have made our ski trails icy with bare areas and quite a bit of leaf/stick litter. We are closing ski trails, which will allow hiking to occur on any trail. However, thawing, refreezing and compacted snow has created potentially slippery conditions, so please use traction devices or appropriate footwear for the conditions. Skiing may be possible on some trails for a few more days.

Conditions: closed
Trail groomed? yes
Trail base: 0-2"
Groomed mileage: 19.0
Difficulty: all levels (track)  all levels (skate)

The trail(s):
The park grooms 19 miles of cross country ski trails, including 6 miles of skate ski trails, and 15 miles of classic trails. The park also maintains 3 miles of combined winter hiking and snowshoe trails. In addition, the park offers 10 miles of backcountry (ungroomed/not packed) trails for snowshoeing, winter hiking and backcountry skiing. The trails traverse through prairie, upland oak savanna and maple basswood forests as well as the bottomland hardwood forests of the beautiful St. Croix River Valley.

  • Daily ski passes are sold at the park office. Annual ski passes are available on-line.
  • Rentals are available for skis and snowshoes at the Trail Center on weekends.
