Cross-Country Ski Trails now Available

Post Date:12/31/2020 2:14 pm
Trails in Moorhead have been groomed and are now ready for cross-country skiing. Enjoy fresh tracks now available at the following Moorhead Parks:

M.B. Johnson Park
Homestead Park
Riverfront/Memorial Park
Viking Ship Park
Woodlawn Park
Gooseberry Park
River Oaks Park

Walkers, bikers, and snowshoers are asked to stay off trails that are groomed for cross-country skiing. If you need to cross a ski trail, please do so perpendicular to the trail and avoid stepping in the grooves of the classic ski track. Your cooperation is appreciated. Signage will be posted soon to help aid in designated ski trails.

New this year! Cross-country ski and snowshoe rentals have moved from M.B. Johnson Park to the Hjemkomst Center for use on the lighted trails at Viking Ship Park only.

Ski Rental packages are $12/person or $35/family
Snowshoe rental is $10/person or $20/family.
Cash or checks only. Credit cards will not be accepted. A valid driver’s license or photo ID will be required as a deposit for rental equipment.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions from the State of Minnesota, bathrooms and warming house areas are not allowed to be open at this time. Please prepare for your trip accordingly. One family will be allowed into the entrance of the Hjemkomst Center at a time to fill out rental forms, pay, and take their equipment outside. Masks must be worn while inside the building.

Rentals are available:
Saturdays 10:00 am-4:30 pm
Sundays Noon-4:30 pm

Starting Tuesday, January 12, restrictions will be lifted and we will be able to open the building for bathrooms and warming areas. We will then add Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 4:00-8:00 pm to the existing schedule. We thank you for your consideration during this time!
