Ski, Bike, Walk, Snowshoe, Skijour Trails
In a partnership with Three Rivers Park District, the City will groom two winter multi-use recreation trails that will meander through the golf course—one for just under a mile and one for three and a half miles. The unlighted corduroy-style compacted trails will be 6 to 8 feet wide and will rely on natural snow. Trail maintenance will begin when snow conditions are appropriate and will continue through late February (contingent upon weather and snow conditions).
Trails will be available for fat tire biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skijouring, and winter walking.
Food and Drinks
The Brookview Grill will be open on weekends to provide food, beverages, and warm-up areas inside or around the outdoor fire pit. Restrooms and locker rooms are also available.
Fat Tire Biking
Brookview is partnering with Tonka Cycle & Ski and Salsa Bikes to offer fat bike rentals for use on the trails. Fat bikes are rented in two-hour increments for $25 and come with a bike helmet (required), a small storage bag, and lights for after-dark trail use. A waiver is required for all bike rentals (parent/guardian signature required for those under age 18), as is a credit card hold until the bike is returned. Rentals are available during winter Brookview Grill hours. Call 763-512-2305 to book rentals.
