Snowshoeing on Pike Island @ Fort Snelling State Park












I have several extra pairs for those that would like to try snowshoeing. First 'come' first serve, so let me know if you need to borrow a pair.


Sounds like we are getting a few more inches of fresh snow by Friday night and the weather forecast looks great on Saturday for playing in it. Partly cloudy high in mid 20's

We will snowshoe on Pike Island which normally takes approximately an hour to hike the 3.1 miles. Since we will be on snowshoes it will take a bit longer.

There are no rentals at Fort Snelling State Park so you will have to provide your own. REI rents them for the day.

Afterward we can get a bite to eat and a drink somewhere near by for those interested.

The Visitor Center is located at the end of main road that runs through the park. It is located under the Mendota/Hwy 55 bridge. I have a dark blue Ford Explorer. Also a reminder that a State Park sticker is required for your vehicle. either carpool with someone that already has one or you can get a day pass for $5.00. I would suggest getting the $25 annual pass if you plan on attending other events at State Parks. It's good for all the State Parks in MN.

Hope to see some of you out there.

    Do you have a pair I could use?
    I moved from TX a yr ago and the only outdoor Winter activity I've done is downhill skiing. What should I bring/wear?
