Class I-II Snake River, MN

Snake River State Water Trail

The difficulty of the Snake River varies greatly. Water levels can fluctuate greatly in the spring, depending on rainfall. There are some nice campsites along this river. From Silver Star Road to County Road 3, the upper Snake is dotted with rapids and falls ranging from Class I-IV, depending on water levels. From Mora to Pine City, the river is more gentle with very few rapids. Below Cross Lake, the pace picks up again and the river shoots through a series of Class I-III rapids and pools, dropping 136 feet in its last 12 miles.
