The Devil's kettle falls freezes in wintertime! still a beautiful hike and the lower falls flow, but expect the big falls to be frozen.

Beautiful hike, the falls are flowing after the rain. Snow is pretty compact, Ice cleats we're great!

Trail was great, really deep snow but we had snowshoes on so it wasn’t a problem as long as you stay in trail. The waterfall was beautiful and the swinging bridge is fun. We didn’t have time to make it all the way to two falls. I’d like to come back and do that or see the hike in the summer

It was very foggy, so could not see the views☹️. The loop was not traveled so we had to blaze our own trail and the trail markings were not well marked, we would have gotten lost if it wasn't for our app and compas. The snow was very deep, got stuck a few times. Had to turn back because we already walked 5 miles and it was hard to find our way on an untraveled path. It took us a total of 6 hours and 19 minutes and we still didn't complete the loop.

beautiful! perfect for snowshoeing on a sunny day! you will see many friendly deer! took us about 3 hours to complete.

fun trail not easy in the winter while raining and walking the ski trail

I snowshoed the day trail with a pup in tow and had a great day!

Great snowshoeing trail that follows the river.

I have used parts of this paved trail for walking and done the loop while biking. It is nice to be more in nature just steps from suburban life.

It does seem to flood often when there is a lot of rain.

Paved, easy trail, accessible. Falls are beautiful. Easy short hike to a great view of the Minnesota -Canada boarder.

easy snowshoeing. very flat and freshly groomed with many options to go off trail

Easy with variety of views as you go around the lake and no ups and downs. We like it in summer with people who don’t like elevation. And it’s fun in winter but snowshoes are required.

trail can push deep in the hills for extra challenge.

I’m excited to see this trail in the spring - it was tough to figure out exactly where to go with large parts being under deep snow with no pack or tracks to really indicate the trail. The most packed portion was leading up the bluffs which was also marked as closed...coming off the bluffs is mostly paved trail so fairly easy but a bit slick in a few spots.

Did this trail with snowshoes. It was beautiful, but the snow is quite deep in places. Made it especially difficult where no one had blazed the trail. The bridge at the top of the loop is out. We crossed the frozen river, but was nervous about it. The full loop has great river valley views and long views of Superior at the end. If I did it again in current conditions, I would turn back at the bridge. That avoids crossing the frozen river and the really deep snow on the north side. Plus, the river valley is what’s best on this hike.

I snowshoed bike trails. It is okay for a city spot but I much prefer not seeing neighborhoods and hearing people and traffic when I am trying to enjoy nature. Plus there was a fat bike event that wasn't posted so I eventually had to leave or get run over :)

So I did this in the winter, and it had just snowed 2 and a half feet.. And it took me 2 hours

Nice escape from the city noise. Easy, well marked trails.

Snowshoed this trail 2/15/19. Someone/people also snowshoed the trail before us, so it was easy to follow. If there was heavy snowfall, this trail would be hard to follow unless you had gps. If you're looking for an easy snowshoe trek with great views of Minnesota, we highly recommend this one!

Can be snowshoed or walking. Can hike across the lakes right now. Beautiful, lots of folks here on the weekend.

One of the best running paths I’ve ever run on. The scenery is great, the path is long- great for marathon training! Running, walking, roller blading, bicycling! In the summer, in canal park you can rent different types of bicycles. It is very dog friendly!

I was out briefly 2/13/19. At that time I was unaware it’s descriptions didn’t include leashed dogs. Now I do. I’ve looked at other parks that allow leashed dogs. That doesn’t exclude me from hiking here without the dogs.

This app specifically lists snowshoeing as an activity. The trails are groomed only for skiing though (beautifully I may add) but snowshoeing is prohibited. Beautiful park though.

Nice trail, it is a regular one for us.

Beautiful, easy walk. The scenery changes with the seasons.

Easy, flat, year round, close to the city hiking trail.

We specifically looked for snowshoeing trails. This park came up and we had been here in the summer when it was a great hiking trail.
However, we came for snowshoeing and the trail is plowed and a groomed ski trail next to it. So it is not appropriate at all for snowshoeing and was highly disappointing.
