Seek panfish in Annie Battle Lake, Minnesota's only "heritage fishery" (you can borrow a fishing kit from the park office, open year-round). Rent boats, canoes, kayaks, skis or snowshoes.

The wide, paved Glendalough Trail is perfect for beginners and leisurely bike rides through 12 miles of scenery with little incline. Or hike the scenic Beaver Pond Interpretive Trail. Visit the historic Glendalough Lodge for displays of the park's fascinating history.
