What started thousands of years ago as a mode of transportation has evolved into something that lets us enjoy the outdoors, even in winter. Snowshoeing makes hiking through the snow simple. So we went looking for the best place to do it in Minnesota, and ended up in Collegeville for a visit at St. John’s Abbey Arboretum.
Here’s a sign of hope for Minnesotans tired of winter. All trails in Voyageurs National Park in far northern Minnesota have closed for the season because of warm weather.
Usually parks are off limits after dark, unless you are there on a night to celebrating a full moon and a classic sport. On certain nights each month during the winter months, Three Rivers Park District wants to make sure we take advantage of the snow.
Each winter, fastest growing winter sport of snowshoeing sweeps Minnesota each winter after the first good snowfall. Check out these locations for some of Minnesota’s best snowshoeing terrains.
