We came from California and took a random stop at a random Tripadvisor attraction along the way which happened to be this trail. It was freezing cold and we were not sure what to expect and it turned out to be a great experience.
It's just a few minutes off the highway, has a nice parking lot by the viking statue (I guess the main value of that status is to help finding the parking lot location), walked along the trail for a bit, then just got on the ice of the frozen lake. That was a lot of fun, the ice was smooth and thick, so we could push each other and slide - that was great!
I guess for the locals it's something they got used to, but to us it was a highlight of the day.
