The Wirth Winter Recreation Area is now closed for the season.
Visit the Wirth Winter Recreation Area and you'll quickly forget you're in the city. This 700-acre urban forest is a winter sports-lover's paradise! The Wirth Winter Recreation Area at Theodore Wirth Park offers cross-country skiing, snowboarding, tubing, snowshoeing, skijoring, cycling, walking/running trails, birthday parties, and more!
Don't have your own gear? Need a lesson? We have everything you need to get outside and enjoy the beauty and fun of winter right in the heart of Minneapolis.
After a day in the snow, warm up and refuel at the bar and grill inside the Wirth Chalet, which offers sandwiches, hot dogs, soup, snacks, and beverages, plus free wireless Internet.
Whether you want to get out and cross-country ski, hike the trails, or just absorb the views, the Wirth Winter Recreation Area has it all!
The Wirth Winter Recreation Area is open on Minneapolis school release days in January and February including Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and President's Day. Kids can enjoy winter fun all day long by attending our School's Out Camps.
