INTERNATIONAL FALLS, MN All snowmobile trails and ice roads in the park are closed. All snowmobile trail stakes will be pulled by the end of the week.

Ski trails and snowshoe trails in the park remain open as snow and ice conditions permit, but grooming on all trails has finished. With the warmer weather, trail conditions are deteriorating rapidly. Cross-country ski and snowshoe rentals from the Rainy Lake Visitor Center have finished for the season.

Below is the last winter trail conditions report for the season. All reports are available on the park's website at
