Moilanen's Meadow was first groomed in the mid-to-late 1980's when Don and Steve Moilanen, volunteer groomers for the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks, noticed an open area to the north of the White Bear and decided to groom a new loop in that meadow. The trail was more formally constructed in the 1990's. Including Moilanen's Meadow in a trip around part or all of the White Bear trail adds 1Km to the disstance.
