Mississippi National Trails

The Mississippi National Ski Trail system is home to the Red Wing Nordic Team.  There are 8km of groomed trails for classic skiing.  These trails wind through hilly wooded terrain within the Memorial Park area of Red Wing.  The trail loops offer beautiful and extensive views of Red Wing, the Mississippi River and the surrounding bluffs of the river valley.

There are also  flatter groomed trails for skating and classic skiing on the Mississippi Golf Course.  The skating course is a generally rolling trail that offers both flat and moderate hilly sections.  For the more seasoned skier there is also a challenging section through wooden terrain called the “catwalk” that is comprised of a series of more demanding hills.   The trail system is open to the public.  The trail head is located at the Mississippi Golf Course parking lot 2 miles south of Red Wing.

The trails are groomed and maintained on a regular basis by a group of Red Wing community volunteers.  Thank YOU groomers!
