Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing

 

Snowshoeing is a fun winter activity that gets all ages outdoors exploring the beauty of 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.

State parks with snowshoe rentals ($6/day)

* At Wild River State Park, snowshoes are available for rent through a private concessionaire located at the park's Trail Center, Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For rental rates or to reserve equipment, call Wild River Ski Rental at 651-257-0685.
