Trail Conditions



Woodland trails for hiking  are accessible from the North, Bear paw and East trailhead parking lots and the Boulder Lake Reservoir dam. Consisting of a north and south trail system; the two connect in winter when the water freezes. The trails are multi-use, so we ask everyone to be considerate of others while using the trail systems. 

Summer trails maintained: Bear Paw, Blue Ox, Rolling Pin, Ridge Runner

Cross-Country Skiing

Twenty-three kilometers of trails are groomed for traditional and skate style cross-country skiing in the southern portion of the BLMA. Wolfski Ski Den is open on a daily basis during the ski season. (See Covid-19 Guidelines) Trail and snow conditions are available on the Skiers Hotline at (218) 355-3057 or on the Skiwise app. The trails are dog friendly Thursday and Sunday only, because they

get groomed the day after.

Fat Tire Biking

Fat tire bikers are welcomed on the trail systems. Remember to stay off the cross-country ski sets. If you are leaving an indent in the snow, we ask that you adjust your tire pressure accordingly. PSI of 1-4 in softer snow conditions. If your bike is continuing to make an indent on the trail, it is recommended to stay off the trails until they have a chance to harden up. 


Visitors looking to snowshoe will find 6 km of trails beginning at Wolfski Ski Den or endless backcountry opportunities within BLMA. Snowshoe trails are designated by the candy-cane (red-white) colored flagging. While you are out there, stop in at Britton Lodge for a break on your journey. Located at the nexus of the snowshoe trail.


The Bear Paw trail system is accessible to horseback riders. Parking is available at the Bear Paw parking lot. Keep to the right of the trail and let other trail users know you are coming through. 

No Motorized Vehicles

No motorized vehicles on any of the trails. During winter, motorized vehicles may access the lake from the dam.
