Voyageurs National Park Winter Ice And Trail Conditions Report for January 5
Contact: Jim Hummel, 218-283-6600
The entire 50 mile length of the Green Trail from Rainy Lake, through the Kabetogama Lake and Ash River communities and on to Crane Lake is now open and staked in Voyageurs National Park. Snowmobiling conditions are smooth on lake surfaces and overland portages have adequate snow for traveling, but conditions are occasionally rough. Also, with the recent heavy snowfall, pockets of slush are present and travelers are urged to use caution. Thin ice conditions are preventing opening of additional trails and travel is not recommended in areas outside of the Green Trail. Regular weekly winter trail conditions reports are available on our website at www.nps.gov/voya.

Voyageurs National Park experienced a large, lightning-ignited fire on the Kabetogama Peninsula in 2004. This young eagle survived the fire and returned to its former nesting tree in time for park researchers to take this photo!
