1st Day Guided Snowshoe Hike

Sunday, January 1, 2023

Kick off the New Year with a FIRST DAY HIKE! Join volunteers and park staff for a brisk snowshoe hike around our frosty winter wonderland as we ring in the New Year in the great outdoors! Limited space is available for the hike, so please call ahead to reserve your spot. This is a fantastic hike for first-timers in snowshoes or adults with children. The hike is easy with varying views, plenty of opportunities for snowball fights and memorable photos! A limited number of snowshoes are available to rent for no charge, please call ahead to reserve a pair. Following the hike, hot cocoa, and light snacks will be available for participants outside the North Reservation Booth.

Be sure to bring your valid Sno-Park Pass for parking if you plan on extending your stay beyond the hike. Sno-Park Passes are also available for purchase within the park.

Check the weather and dress for conditions. Bring your own snacks and water for the hike. The trail is 1.3 miles long, with an option to extend your route on your own. The terrain along the guided route is mostly flat with minor dips in the trail. Expect the snow on the trail to be variable from nicely packed to minorly icy.

A limited number of spots are available for the hike so please call ahead to reserve your spot now.

A limited amount of Snowshoe rentals are available to rent at the North Park entrance, be sure to call ahead to reserve your pair. Rentals are free for the event.
