Snowy Lantern-lit Trail through the woods

Beginning at the park trailhead off Seffern Road, skiers will find approximately 1.8 miles of groomed and track-set trails lit by lanterns. Visitors can enjoy a bonfire at the trailhead before they start out and then will find another bonfire, snacks and hot chocolate at 14 Foot Shoals cabin located at the halfway point on the trail. Snowshoers are also welcome but are asked to keep to one side of the groomed ski tracks. The park is open throughout the winter for skiing and hiking. The candlelight skiing event will be held weather permitting and interested participants should call ahead to confirm there is adequate snowfall at the park.  For more information on this event or about the park, call the park at 231-627-2811.
