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).

  The recent dusting has re-charged the snow level to "acceptable" for rock skis. (Where did the promised 2" go?)

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Groomers made a late run last night and rolled the new powder. Perimeter 10k is in nice shape, but B skis would be your best bet. Trails with pavement below should be skied with caution or avoided.

  Swung by Woodlands and ran into a groomer. The rumor was true, outer perimeter trail was groomed last night. If your expectations can handle some oak leaves on the trail, your experience should be better than just ok. Get some before it turns into a squeak fest! Who'll make first tracks?

  Full, but thin, coverage with some stick and leaf debris, maybe a few very small dirt spots. A little wavy but overall another enjoyable ski in the woods. Other people to deer ratio today 2:2. If you have quick feet, a trip to Elk River would be worth your drive. I heard a rumor that the groomers are considering a touch-up run soon.

  Skied Tuesday and Wednesday. It's pretty rough, and your rock skis will collect more "character". It's worth it though, to be off the hamster wheel. Today's dusting will certainly help.
