Top Snowshoeing in Minnesota

North Shore State Parks

The state parks that dot the shores of Lake Superior not only offer access to the Superior Hiking Trail but also boast spectacular views and reliable snowfall. There are eight state parks between Duluth and the Ontario border, each with its own attractions. Gooseberry Falls State Park has a dazzling display of waterfalls. The lighthouse at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, standing 130 feet above Lake Superior on a rock cliff, is the most photographed object in Minnesota. Tettegouche State Park has acres galore of backcountry to explore. Snowshoeing is allowed anywhere in state parks except groomed ski trails. Most parks also have separate trails or areas set aside for foot and snowshoe travel.
