They allow you to get off the beaten path and experience our beautiful Minnesota winters.  Snowshoe rentals are available on Saturdays and Sundays during the hours of Noon to 4 p.m. (January thru mid-March) at Robert Ney Regional Park and Nature Center.  Check out the following parks that have snowshoeing:
