Snowshoeing is an easy-to-learn activity for all ages, and a great way to exercise while exploring the winter beauty of Minneapolis parks. Snowshoes easily strap to your boots to allow for easier travel over snow and ice by spreading your weight over a larger surface area. Today’s snowshoes are lightweight aluminum with styles for walking, hiking, and running.
Explore the snow-covered wooded trails of Theodore Wirth Park, join a naturalist-led trek, or set off on an adventure of your own. If you’re snowshoeing on your own, the Wirth Off-Road Cycling area at the Wirth Winter Recreation Area has some of the best trails in town. The trail twists and climbs its way through a wooded, hilly section of Theodore Wirth Park.
We offer naturalist-led snowshoeing and natural history programs for all ages. Along the way you’ll learn some history and discover wildlife and habitats that may seem incredible for our urban environment.
