Exploring Snowshoeing

Gooseberry Falls State Park | Two Harbors

Discover the quiet enjoyment of this low-impact sport. Begin in the Visitor Center Theater for a brief history and basic instructions. Then join the naturalist for a gentle hike to the CCC Camp looking for signs of wildlife and winter wonders.

Bring your own snowshoes or borrow a pair from the park. There are a limited number of adult and children? snowshoes, send us an email or stop in at the Visitor Center to reserve your snowshoes. Call Gooseberry Falls 218 595-7108.

We do need 6 inches of snow on the ground to snowshoe, if there is a lack of snow, a winter walk will occur.
