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; 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 Trails open sunrise to sunset daily.
