Midwest Living Review

Lisa Meyers McClintick
Arboretum and recreation trails cover 500 acres in Brainerd/Baxter, Minnesota.

Find the area's best-groomed and only lit ski trails (20 kilometers in all) at Northland Arboretum, tucked behind Brainerd-Baxter's commercial district. Try the hilly Potlatch, or choose the gentler Acorn Trail. $3/daily pass and parking (218/829-8770; arb.brainerd.com). Minnesota Ski Pass required ($5/day; $15/season). The Pine Beach trail system loops around several resorts and stretches into challenging Pillsbury State Forest. Download maps at explorebrainerdlakes.com. Trails open sunrise to sunset daily. Visitor center open MondayFriday 8am4:30pm.
