Minnesota- Many state parks are fully groomed and ready for visitors. In Grand Rapids, the Taconite State Trail System is groomed from town to Highway 73. There are shelters along the trail but the DNR is warning riders to watch for loggers. At Jay Cooke State Park, crews are still cleaning up from December’s storms. Staff are urging extreme caution as many trails still need to be checked by park staff.

Trail Report from the American Birkebeiner:

The week started off with light rain and warmer temperatures and ended with 6-7″ of snow. The trails are looking great out there! The groomers are out grooming and making sure the trails are ready. The temps are looking great for this weekend so get out and ski! This Saturday (1/21) the Birkie Tour and a night race will both be happening at the Birkie Trailhead in Cable, WI.
