It is pretty darn easy, affordable, and is a great way to immerse yourself in the magic of freshly fallen snow. The trail-side scenery and wildlife is terrific! Without snowshoes, your feet sink down into the snow. With a pair of snowshoes you stay on the top of the snow. It is great exercise, and allows you to access trails that would be too cumbersome with just hiking boots. You can learn in a few minutes, and can transport equipment inside your vehicle. Contact the Park Falls or Phillips Area Chamber of Commerce for equipment rental information.
Our winter silent sport trails are multi-use and welcome users to cross-country ski, snowshoe, fat bike and skijor. Trails vary in difficulty with something for every skill level. Only cross-country skiers are allowed on the tracked/groomed portions of the winter trails; others are welcome to use the side of the trail that is not groomed. View trail conditions report.
Snowshoeing is available on Price County hiking trails or wildlife areas in the thousands of acres of national, state and county forests located throughout the county. Snowshoeing is allowed on snowmobile trails, but for your safety, be prepared to get off the trail as soon as you hear snowmobiles approaching.
