Trail Reports

Trail Report for 2-25-21

Local snow depth is only two inches. The Glacial Lakes State Trail is closed to snowmobiling due to lack of snow; however, many people are out enjoying the trails via walking or biking. Also, Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center has ended their ski/kicksled/snowshoe season due to lack of snow. As for fat-tire bike rentals, please do not ride the off road bike trails if they are muddy (as this creates ruts that are very difficult to fix). If you’d like to rent a bike, call for reservations 320-354-5894.

Trail Report for 2-18-21

We have not received any new measurable snow; therefore the trails are in poor shape for skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. Kicksleds and fat-tire bikes are still available to rent from Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center. Please call 320-354-5894 24 hours in advance to reserve your rental.

Local snow depth is 4-6 inches. There are some drifts and bare areas along the Glacial Lakes State Trail. Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center ski trails are in poor shape.

Kicksleds are still available for rent. The fat-tire bike trails were last packed on 1/25/21. Please call 320-354-5894 24 hours in…

The money pays for the trail’s upkeep and the equipment needed to do so. “It’s a year-round job to keep the trails in shape. It’s…
