Participants should meet inside the Rainy Lake Visitor Center to start the program. Bring your own snowshoes or borrow a pair free-of-charge from the Rainy Lake Visitor Center. No fee or registration is required to attend. Participants may need to car caravan to the hike’s starting location.
Snowshoe hike destinations will depend on wind, weather, and ice road conditions. Call the morning of the snowshoe program, (218) 286-5258, to find out the expected destination. Possible destinations include: the Oberholtzer Trail, the Black Bay Hiking Trail, Rainy Lake City, Bushyhead Island, and other locations off of the Rainy Lake Ice Road.
Afterwards, visitors are invited back to the visitor center to warm up with a cup of cocoa, view exhibits, watch the park film, and look through the Jefferson National Parks Association bookstore.
