Flathorn - Gegoka Ski Trails


The Flathorn - Gegoka Ski Trails skirt Flathorn and Gegoka Lakes near Isabella.  The trails are easily accessed from a parking area off the Mitiwan Lake Road (FR 177) off of MN 1 just past Isabella.  Note that the parking area moved in 2006 and users are not to park in the old lot off of MN 1.  There are many loops, some in open areas and some under old white pine.  Difficulty varies from expert to easy.  Trails are groomed for classic skiing only, there are no skate skiing trails.
