Itascatur Outdoor Activities Club was founded in 1982 in Park Rapids MN. From the start we have been dedicated to the goal of improving the fitness and health of the community of the surrounding Hubbard County area.
As such our membership is drawn principally from the local community. Our primary focus for the past 40 years has been on providing venues and organized activities of nordic skiing and bicycling.
Moreover, we are a charitable organization, providing community outreach in planning and education in bicycling and skiing opportunities for our areas, as well as making donation to the community of needed projects such as area bike racks.
Join our group bike rides!
Over the spring through fall months we organize both sport group bike rides on the Heartland Trail and area blacktop roads as well as a weekly social ride every Friday. Check our Facebook page for weekly information regarding these rides.
Ski with us at Soaring Eagle!
In the wintertime we maintain and operate the Soaring Eagle Nordic Ski Area, the premier nordic ski area in this part of Minnesota, which is located just to the North of Park Rapids on Hi 71.
