Join the Park Interpreter for a  one-mile looped trail that will be lit by over 70 lanterns. Along this trail you will encounter a wintery Lake Superior and also a warming shelter that will have a bonfire and refreshments available to enjoy.  This is rated as an easy difficulty trail and it is recommended that you bring a flashlight of some sort just in case. Skiing, snowshoeing and walking are all welcome on the trail. Meet at the trailhead across from the Ski Hill driveway.

This fun winter event will occur January - February on the following dates from 6-9 p.m.:
