Here at Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts, we love adding new activities to help our guests explore all that Minnesota’s North Shore has to offer. This year, we added a complimentary guided trip that will appeal to those looking for a unique winter adventure. Join us as we take a snowshoe hike on the Onion River. Not along it, but right on the frozen river!
The beautiful Onion River is best appreciated while hiking through the canyon. After a quick shuttle ride to the Ray Berglund Wayside, we’ll begin hiking on the Onion River trail. Once we pass the Onion River falls we’ll veer off the trail and begin our trek upstream along the frozen river. Listen as the water bubbles under your feet! Gaze at the breathtaking views and enjoy the peaceful feeling of being surrounded by nature among the canyon walls.
When the snow is deep and fluffy we will outfit everyone with snowshoes for the trek. When the frozen river is covered in packed snow we will outfit our boots in yak tracks.
Hike stats: This is a 1.5-mile round-trip hike, and the difficulty level is moderate. Because of potential spots of open water plus a few steep inclines this hike is recommended for those 18 and older only.
