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).

  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!

  More fun than an old fellow should be allowed to have. I finished my afternoon lap about 4:30. For late in the day the trail was still in great shape and the ski was fast and fun. Woodlands was full of the sounds of happy skiers, just like the good old days. We would like to thank both our old and new ski friends for coming out today to join in the fun. As long as the weather cooperates there should be more great skis in our future.

  Lumberjack and Blooming Onion just finished their evening run with the medium screens. Lumberjack reported that once again the screens worked their magic on the skate trails. This groomng pass was on top another pass with rollers last evening to further firm the base, compliments of Babe and Captain Ken. A ski at Woodlands tomorrow will not disappoint. Enjoy!
