Bunker Hills Regional Park is home to a skijoring trail. Skijoring is the sport combining cross-country skiing and dog sledding. A dog, or team of dogs, pulls a skier. Over 8 kilometers of groomed trail meanders through the oaks, pines and prairie in the western portion of the park. The trail begins at the tree disposal area. Here are a few tips for newcomers to the sport: Dogs must be licensed. Skiers must have a Minnesota Ski Pass.
Dogs must be leashed and under the control of the skier. Skiers must clean up after their dogs. Faster teams should be allowed to pass. Keep aggressive dogs at home or muzzled. Please travel in a clockwise direction to avoid meeting teams head-on.
