logo~ Ski, bike and run club in Park Rapids, MN

Itascatur is a ski, bike and run club from the Park Rapids, Minnesota region. We are a social and active group that has an organized bike ride twice weekly in the summer and also has gatherings during the ski season.

Proceeds from our events and input from member volunteers have allowed Itascatur to build and maintain the Soaring Eagle Ski trails and Nordic Center north of Park Rapids Mn. Itascatur also sponsors the Headwaters 100 bike ride, a 45, 75, or 100 mile route that showcases the beautiful fall scenery of North Central Minnesota, as well as the picturesque Wilderness Drive through Itasca State Park.

Soaring Eagle

Open House

Itascatur volunteers have completed the annual clean-up of the cross country ski trails at Soaring Eagle. Every year a group of our volunteers gets together and clears deadfalls, branches, mows the trails, and gets the warming house and ski inventory ready for our weekly open houses in the winter.

Open houses are free to the public! You're welcome to use our skis, boots and poles during these open houses, or if you have your own gear you can use the trails any time. All you need to bring with you is your MN DNR Ski Pass, which you can purchase online or at any retailer that also sells hunting/ fishing licenses.

Check out our Ski page for more information about Soaring Eagle and updates to the open house schedule. You can also find updates to Soaring Eagle on Facebook.
