Renville (KMHL)- As of last week, winter recreation trails in Beaver Falls and Skalbekken County Parks have been groomed to allow for walking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, fat-tire biking, and other non-motorized recreational uses.

The grooming effort is the result of a collaboration between the Renville County HRA/EDA and Renville County Parks Departments.  The trail follows the park road in both parks, providing a 1.5-mile trail in Skalbekken and a 2-mile trail in Beaver Falls.

Visitors are encouraged to park in the horse camp in Skalbekken and at the south entrance in Beaver Falls.  Maps showing the groomed trail routes are posted at all trail entrances and are available to print online.  The park shelters and restrooms remain available for visitor use.  Entrance into the county parks, and use of the groomed trails, is free for day use.
