Loppet Foundation

About the Project


We’re excited to share that we are partnering with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board to build The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park. The Loppet Foundation has raised a significant amount of support so far, but now we need your help.

Who: The Trailhead will be a home for you and other outdoor enthusiasts in the community. Skiers, bikers, hikers, runners, snowboarders, golfers alike . . .

What: A year-round, 14,000 sq. ft. facility, expanded trails, learning/staging areas, and snow-making capabilities.

Where: Near the existing Par 3 building north of Highway 55. (The historic chalet will remain as a golf clubhouse)

When: To date, we are 75% towards our capital project goal of $8.5 Million. We began construction on the project in Spring 2017, with trails and the facility planning to open in Spring 2018.

Why: We believe that the Trailhead will create a space for diverse communities to unite over a shared enthusiasm for year-round outdoor activities.
