Notes

About 17km total of trail loops near the St. Cloud penitentiary. Some scenic woods and great hills. Just a mile from the Mississippi, trails run on land that was formerly a farm and takes skiers through pastures, forests, and apple orchards. Trails are mostly easy to intermediate with a few challenging hills.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
I skied the classic tracks on the Warm Up and Orchard loops. The tracks were in very good condition, with a couple of short stretches where tracks would have been difficult to set due to the previous drifting. I used my good skis with no damage. At +7 degrees, VO-5 Polar kicked well with decent glide considering the cold and new snow. Many thanks to the volunteer grooming crew!
