29th Annual Candlelight Ski/Hike/Snowshoe

Saturday, February 10, 6:00-9:00 pm

      The Friends of Pike Lake will line trails with over 300 glowing luminaria to welcome and guide hikers, skiers and snowshoers at the 29th annual Pike Lake Ski/Hike/Snowshoe.  Festivities run from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on Saturday, February 10th.  State Forest rangers and volunteers will be on hand for assistance and information.  Flat-grooming of the two connected 3/4-mile trails will provide a good surface for all three activities.  This popular event will take place with or without snow.   

      Members of the Northern Cross Science Foundation will have their telescopes set up to help visitors view solar system and galactic objects.
           This is a great winter activity for people of all ages with two linked, lighted trails providing a variety of terrain.  A huge bonfire near the north shelter will provide warmth and good cheer.
           The improved, warming shelter just north of the beach parking lot will feature the usual hot drinks and snacks and representatives of the Ice Age Trail Foundation.
                     The lighted trail starts near the beach at the main parking lot, located on Kettle-Moraine Drive off of Highway 60 between Hartford and Slinger.  This is a free event, though a 2018 State Park sticker (available at the entrance) is required for parking.
