Northland Arboretum is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to getting the community involved in and aware of nature. We have a wide, beautiful area for you and your family to explore. Have a peaceful walk on our nature trails. Winter time? We've got that covered too! You can cross country ski on our spectacular groomed snow covered trails. Snowshoe or winter hike on non-groomed trails.
“Winter rules are currently in effect at the Northland Arboretum.
The cross-county ski trails are now being groomed and only open to skiers. If you’d like to walk or snowshoe the Arb, the 1.8-mile fitness trail is available. You are welcome to bring your dog (leashed please) along on the fitness trail. Winter cycling is currently off limits as the Arb trails are either groomed for skiing or too narrow to simultaneously accommodate multiple silent sports.
The ski trails at the Arb are made possible through the grant-in-aid program. If you are 16 or older, you must have a Great Minnesota Ski Pass to ski on groomed trails in Minnesota state parks or state forests, or on state or grant-in-aid trails. Sign your ski pass and be sure to carry it with you every time you go skiing. Your ski pass fee helps support the trails at the Arb and Minnesota's cross-country ski trail system. An annual pass is only $20 and can be purchased at any business that sells Minnesota fishing and hunting licenses.
If you have a Great Minnesota Ski Pass, you don’t need an Arb membership to enjoy the ski trails. All others that use the Arb must either have an Arb membership or pay a daily access fee. We kindly ask you to comply with these requirements as the Arb staff doesn’t really want to check everyone as they enter or risk embarrassing you in front of your friends because you went sans membership.” Vicki Foss, Executive Director
