Description: Join the St. Croix River Association (SCRA) for a winter trails day on Saturday February 24th from 9:00am-12:00pm at William O’Brien State Park. Beat the mid-winter cabin fever by getting outside and hitting the trails. Enjoy the trails with SCRA naturalists or snowshoe or cross country ski or on your own.
If there is no snow we will still enjoy the trails, so make sure you have your boots! Once you get cold come warm yourself by the bonfire and enjoy some s’mores and hot chocolate.
