Woodland Trails
Elk River, MN
Trail Length: 15km  Maps: |
Groomed: Skating/Classical    Lighted: No Snowmaking: No
Contact:     Weather: [ NWS ]  
Notes:   Maintained by Elk River Nordic Nordic Ski Club, these trails have become a hot-spot for fantastic skiing in the North Metro. Trails are largely wooded over rolling terrain, but some sections have good climbs and descents. Trails consist of several interconnected loops and are aptly named--be sure to check out the "Top-of-the-World" and "Gravity Box" as well as "Wash Pond Flats" to the NE of the biathlon range. There is not a warming shack, but at least one port-o-potty at the main parking lot. Primarily groomed for skate (not always tracked for classic).

  Babe just reported in that he just finished a rare grooming run with Taxi. They pulled the medium screens, which coupled with tonight's cool temps should bring a big improvement to the mashed potato conditions we had today. And, there is only one way to find out how it is going to ski. Watch for possible trail closure on Wednesday and Thursday. Enjoy while it lasts.

Grooming

  Five new inches rolled curb to curb and ready for a nice soft ski. Evinrude came out of retirement to break trail for Ancient One and Lumberjack on the first shift run with the rollers. Wrong Way was waiting in the parking lot for them so she could start her morning ski. Chainsaw and The Natural took the second shift making a second pass around the outer loop to widen and firm up the middle and to roll the grade and winter walking trail. The Engineer reset our tracks on the flatter trails. Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy Woodlands yesterday. Enjoy!

  Skater's delight at Woodland Trails this late morning! I took the advice of a previous reporter and took the day to make the trek to Elk River to enjoy the fantastic conditions on the outer loop (10K per loop) and it was well worth it! Some of the cleanest snow I've seen lately, and incredible grooming. No classic tracks on 80% of the outer loop, but skating was fantastic. Getting a little soft and slow by noon, and poles starting to poke through, so I suggest larger baskets for your poles. Should be continued good skiing tomorrow morning!

  The trails at Woodlands have setup fantastic, my poles did not poke thru the top crust at all this morning. The deck is smooth flat and firm. My suggestion is play hookie this afternoon and make a run to Woodlands. Enjoy it while you can. Don't forget gas for the snowblower on the way home.

  If you have been waiting for just the right combination of snow, temperature and grooming to make a trip to Woodlands for an afternoon ski, tomorrow is the day. We expect the skate deck to be ask good as it can get. Shear-Pin just reported in that he and Captain Ken have just finished their evening 12mph run with the medium screens, including a third pass on the outer loop for full width grooming. Enjoy!
