Many Uses, One Trail
Trail Passes Required for Horse Traffic and Skiers
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reminds horse riders to buy their Horse Trail Pass. The pass costs $21 for the calendar year purchased, and is required on horse trails within state parks, state forests, statetrails, and state recreation areas for anyone 16 years of age and older. Cost for a daily pass is $5.
Conservation Officers may periodically check riders for permits.
Cross Country Skiers are required to purchase a ski pass. You must sign your ski pass and carry it with you when skiing. Your ski pass fee helps support Minnesota's cross-country ski trail system. Ski Pass Rates: daily $5, seasonal $15.
DNR rules require a Special Use Permit for significantly large group activities (for example >30 walkers or bikers). Permits may be obtained by contacting the DNR at (651) 259-7176.
