Winter Trails Day is an annual winter festival at Fort Snelling State Park where people of all ages can discover an activity that transforms their winter in to a season of joy.

All equipment will be provided, with outdoor enthusiasts on hand for demonstrations and assistance.

Make sure to take a break and enjoy a cup of complimentary hot cocoa in between activities and stop by The Weenie Wagon for some snacks and hot drinks (including gluten free / vegan / vegetarian options).

We recommend dressing for the weather and bringing a water bottle! Dogs are welcome and must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet and under control at all times. Please pick up after your pets 🙂
