Cross-Country Ski and Snowshoe Trails

Trails in Moorhead have been groomed and are now ready for cross-country skiing. Enjoy fresh tracks now available at the following Moorhead Parks: M.B. Johnson Park, Homestead Park, Riverfront/Memorial Park, Viking Ship Park, Woodlawn Park, Gooseberry Park, and River Oaks Park.

Walkers, bikers, and snowshoers are asked to stay off trails that are groomed for cross-country skiing. If you need to cross a ski trail, please do so perpendicular to the trail and avoid stepping in the grooves of the classic ski track. Your cooperation is appreciated. Signage will be posted to help aid in designated ski trails.

New this year! Cross-country ski and snowshoe rentals have moved from M.B. Johnson Park to the Hjemkomst Center for use on the lighted trails at Viking Ship Park only.

Ski Rental packages are $12/person or $35/family
Snowshoe rental is $10/person or $20/family.
Cash or checks only. Credit cards will not be accepted. A valid driver’s license or photo ID will be required as a deposit for rental equipment. One family will be allowed into the entrance of the Hjemkomst Center at a time to fill out rental forms, pay, and take their equipment outside. Masks must be worn while inside the building.

Rentals are available:
Saturdays 10:00 am-4:30 pm
