PIPESTONE — Starting Dec. 1, and running through Feb. 28, Pipestone National Monument Visitor Center’s winter hours will be 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The Visitor Center will be closed Thursday for Thanksgiving Day.

The Circle Trail is always open for anyone wishing to enjoy a walk. The winter season offers many photographic opportunities to capture the prairie and wildlife. Walking the Circle Trail with family and friends during this quiet time of the year can be particularly enjoyable and peaceful. Please be cautious, as the trail can become icy and slippery.

Beginning in January, the trail will not be cleared of snow. Visitors are welcome to bring their own snowshoes or check out a pair for free from the Visitor Center during open hours.
