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).

  Another 2-4 that turned into 6 very fluffy inches. Ancient One and The Natural took the late afternoon shift to double roll Scouring Rush, the biathlon range and connecting trails for the biathlon event tomorrow starting at just after noon. All trails are open all day, spectators welcome. The winter walking trail heading east from the trailhead goes directly to the range. Shear-Pin just reported in that he and Refuge Guy had just finished their follow-the-leader roller run around the system. Expect trails to be on the soft side, but very skiable. Enjoy!

  Babe and RW had the grooming honors this morning. They finished rolling out our three new inches just before noon. They would have finished earlier, but one sled "fell off the table" and got big time stuck in the fresh snow next to the winter walking trail. It has been many years since we have had enough fresh snow to create that grooming hazard. The Old Coach was out laying down some fine tracks at the same time. Enjoy!

  Chainsaw and the Engineer braved the breeze and went for a slow morning roll. As expected, it was nice in the forest and not so much in the open. They reported a few drifts forming to contend with. A few skiers were out enjoying the protection of the woods of Woodlands. After their roll, the Engineer put down some new track for the Sunday afternoon youth skiers. Bundle up. Enjoy!

  It is a little soft but very skiable. My wax was not quite warm enough (CH6) but it worked pretty good on the new snow. If you can make it out tonight yet it should be a wonderful evening slide.

  We just finished rolling the trails last night 3" of new snow are packed for your skiing pleasure. The best couple words to describe the trails would be Cloud Like. The tracks are still visible if classic ski is your thing wax up the old boards and break out the knickers. Time for me to change and go ski the boys handy work.
