Ski Trails:

There are many ski trails in the Brainerd Lakes Area; many of which are groomed Grant-In-Aid funded trails. To “legally” ski any GIA funded trail, cross country/Nordic skiers aged 16 years and older must purchase a MN Ski Pass. A non-pass holder can be sited by any Conservation Officer if caught on these trails without a pass. The Annual and 3-Year passes can be purchased at any ELS (Electronic Licensing Station) station (if they sell fishing licenses, etc., they will sell ski passes) and the Daily can be purchased from a variety of non-ELS providers. The Northland Arboretum is one provider in our area that sells the daily pass.

The Northland Arboretum contains trails for all experience levels. These trails are groomed for classic and skate.

2/7/22: We have the entire system now groomed and will be going to our regular weekly schedule (usually Thursday) unless we receive addition snowfall.  Pine Beach East and West will be groomed double wide to allow for ski skating when possible.

The French Rapids trails are groomed classic and skate, include steep hills and are for intermediate and advanced skiers.

2/7/22: Two inches of snow over the weekend. Groomed all skate lanes. Classic track was nicely skied in over the weekend so did not set new classic tracks

The Larson Lake Trail system is a good mix of classic and skate trails.  Please note that the interior loops are classic only.
