Bring your own snowshoes or borrow a pair free-of-charge from the Rainy Lake Visitor Center. Participants should meet inside the visitor center prior to the start of the hike. No fee or registration is required to attend. Afterwards, visitors are invited to warm up with a cup of cocoa, view exhibits, watch the park film, and look through the Jefferson National Parks Association bookstore.

Snowshoes are always available to borrow during visitor center hours, thanks to generous funding from the Friends of Voyageurs National Park and Voyageurs National Park Association (who would like to thank the North Star Electric Cooperative for their support!).
