Wildlife sightings along the trails are frequent and common. The silent aspect of the sport of Nordic skiing is perfect for wildlife observation since the animals are not easily disturbed by the quiet approach of a skier. Deer are abundant and the chance of seeing them is very high. Winter sightings of beaver squirrels rabbits and fox or coyote are possible. The birds who remain in the area during winter are everywhere: eagles crows hawks a wide variety of finches chickadees jays nuthatches and woodpeckers fill the woods and grasslands. This past winter in addition to the many other owls who live here there was an influx of the great Snowy Owls who usually remain north of the border in Canada. Due to a cyclically bad year for voles in Canada the beautiful birds have migrated further south into Minnesota to find a better source of food. They are spectacular to see and silent in flight so keep your eyes open and watch for them. There are many informational sites on the internet to explore before arriving for a Minnesota vacation. The Minnesota DNR site is loaded with information regarding the exploration of the thousands of acres of public lands within the state. Other area websites offer full information on lodging options and as well as events calendars that explain upcoming events and activities in the surrounding communities.

Snowshoes are seeing a resurgence in popularity. Today these pieces of equipment can be divided into three types: aerobic recreational and mountaineering. The first aerobic are small and lightweight. They are not intended for use over rough terrain but rather on groomed trails. Such snowshoes are commonly used by runners who want to be able to exercise even when there is snow on the ground. Recreational snowshoes and a bit larger and as the name implies most often used on snow hikes. Such hikes are usually three to five miles as anything beyond that is considered mountaineering which requires the largest and toughest kind of snowshoe.
