Grass Lake Nature Preserve, part of Snail Lake Regional Park in the Twin Cities metro area, offers winter trails that are flat and fit for novice skiers. The trail network offers numerous options, including a groomed 3-kilometer classic ski trail that runs along the north and east side of Grass Lake. This two-way trail runs through both wooded areas and marshlands that are found in the park for a lovely half-day ski when conditions permit.

The Great Minnesota Ski Pass is required to use this trail, however one cannot purchase a pass at this trailhead. Daily, one-year, and three-year passes are offered by the state. Trailhead parking is located off Gramsie Road. There is no charge for parking, and the lot will accommodate about 20 vehicles. There is also a portable toilet at the trailhead.
