INTERNATIONAL FALLS, MN –All park ice roads are no longer open. All snowmobile, ski, and snowshoe trails are no longer open. With the swift onset of warmer weather, snow conditions have completely deteriorated. All stakes, signs, and barricades will be removed from trails and lake surfaces by the end of this week.
If travel onto frozen lake surfaces is still necessary, use extreme caution. Heavy slush, cracks in the ice, and open water have all been observed.
Another winter season has concluded. Thanks to all park maintenance staff and gateway community snowmobile clubs, International Voyageurs, Ash River –Kabetogama Snowdrifters, and Voyageur Trail Society, that helped to make it a success.
This is the last Winter Ice and Trail Conditions Report of the season.
