Snowshoe hike

MARINE ON ST. CROIX – Join a park naturalist to explore a beautiful landscape that most visitors don't know about. You don't need experience, but be prepared to snowshoe two miles (though it may feel like hiking 2-5 miles) on moderately steep terrain at William O’Brien State Park, 16821 O’Brien Trail North, Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota.

This event is for ages 10 and up and will take place on Feb. 12, 1-3 p.m.

Bring your own snowshoes if possible. There are a limited number to borrow, so just ask if you need them. Dress in warm layers. Snowshoes will fit over your winter boots. 

If there isn't snow, a nature hike will still take place. This program has limited space so reserve your spot by emailing Sean.Hoppes@state.mn.us or by calling 651-539-4986. 

Programs are free with a $7 daily or $35 annual MN State Parks vehicle permit.
