Winter Trails Report

Detroit Lakes
The Winter Wonderland Snowmobile Trails running through the Detroit Lakes area received 10-13 inches of snow earlier this week. Trails are being groomed and will be fully groomed by the weekend. Trails are currently in very good to excellent condition! Over 250 miles of trails in the Detroit Lakes area offer views of rolling prairie to secluded woodlands with wildlife to snowmobilers. Don't miss the Midnite Riders Classic Old Timers' Snowmobile Run & Swap Meet held in nearby Lake Park on Saturday, February. 2. Cross country skiers are also enjoying all of the fresh snow. Area resorts report roughly 10 inches of fresh, dense snow on their trails, with a base of 5 inches after grooming. The Mountain View Recreation and East Frazee cross country ski trails have also been groomed. Ski trail conditions are considered excellent!

Pelican Rapids
Maplewood State Park  received 10-12 inches of fresh snow on January 28, leaving 16 inches of snow in the woods. Some of the ski trail system has been groomed and skiers report excellent conditions. The trail base measures 4-5 inches. The snowmobile trails are in fair condition at this time, but they should be fully groomed by the weekend at which time conditions should greatly improve. The trail bases measure 2-3 inches. Please drive with caution and watch for icy patches.

Otter Tail Country Trails are being groomed for snowmobiling. The trail base averages 3 inches system-wide, with 6-10 inches of snow on the ground. The northwest side of the trail system (Perham/Wolf Lake) has the best conditions.
