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).

  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.

  Slow go skate with newer snow and 1-2 inches soft snow. Needs another pass. Groomers did a great job with keeping deck wide and flat, setting the stage for epic skiing to come. Double poled alot in the great classic track, including wash pond flats. Don't forget the donation box. A personal thanks to all the volunteer groomers. Parking lot now cleared.

  The conditions at Woodlands are just as Dave reported a little soft and a Army of Snowmen. The snowman army granted safe passage and ride was cloud like soft and smooth. When I got started this morning there were 2 young ladies just finishing their classical lap, they were contemplating playing hookie from work and spending the day at Woodlands. There is a absolutely fantastic set of tracks out there now. So maybe you can leave work early and enjoy a great evening ski at Woodlands.
