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).

  Eight new inches, rolled and screened curb to curb. We had three shifts on the rollers yesterday compliments of Chainsaw, Robin, Babe, The Natural, Ancient One and Surveyor. This morning Babe and I chased each other around with the medium screen like our pants were on fire. We wanted to get the roller humps out before the next round. We made a few small armies of snow men in the process, but the trail is much flatter for the effort. It kind of looks like cool whip frosting. Expect soft and smooth trail conditions. The Old Coach will be out this afternoon to lay down some new tracks. The parking lot was not plowed when we left at noon. Enjoy!

  Finally, this good snow year allows me to get out to great trails that I haven't been to in a few years. Hence, Woodland Hills! Couldn't make the morning race but came out around 2 pm and found very good conditions and reawakened fond memories of a wide array of strenuous climbs and thrilling twisting descents. Conditions were great so one could step turn rather than snowplow the downhill curves. I appreciate the nice trail signage indicating the loop and the area that skiers are entering (i.e., "Top of the World" and the aptly-named "Gravity Box"). Thanks to the diligent grooming crew for making it a great ski day!

  Had a great time skiing today. The snow coverage is excellent. The conditions were great for skating and the classic tracks looked to be in very good shape. Hats off to the groomers you doing a great job.

  Skiing is getting even better at Woodlands. Yesterday afternoon's run was much faster than the day before. The groomers pass with the screens seemed to sand off some of the ruff edges of the snow crystals. It also produced a beautiful smooth base. Another pass with the screens is scheduled tonight to spiff things up for the race tomorrow. Even you do not race come out and enjoy the post race fun and ski a lap or two.

  Shear-Pin just reported in that he and New Coach just finished their evening run with the medium screens for our Sunday skiing pleasure. In his words, "she's a beauty"! If we can dodge the new snow for another day, ski conditions should be fantastic. Enjoy!
