Share the snowy sights of winter with your loved one! Make this a day to remember while our guides lead the way on this relaxed loop!
Bring that special someone to spend an afternoon on an easy snowshoe trail in Afton State Park, just half an hour east of the Twin Cities. Allow a St. Croix River Association trail guide lead you through the peaceful snow-covered floodplain forest as you learn about Minnesota’s winter wildlife. Enjoy some hot beverages and community at the end of the snowshoe.
