This 3.75-mile segment of paved trail stretches along the river, through the Xcel Energy Black Dog power plant property, to Minnesota Highway 77/Cedar Avenue. It is ideal for walking or biking, and includes an observation deck and wildlife viewing areas on the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge. So grab your fat bike and hit the snowy pavement for a beautiful winter ride.

They have 10 lifts and one of the best snow-making systems in the Midwest. Plus, they offer ski and snowboard rentals as well as group and private lessons for people of all ages and abilities!
