Take in Michigan’s winter beauty on a pair of snowshoes

Looking for a fun way to explore our state’s scenic outdoors this winter, and get some exercise while you’re at it? We’re offering several guided snowshoe hikes in February:

Tahquamenon Falls State Park Upper Falls guided snowshoe hike: Feb. 6, 13, 20 and 27

Strap on your snowshoes (or borrow a pair of ours) and join the park naturalist for a free guided hike through the forest of the Upper Falls. Hike lasts approximately one hour and includes blazing a trail through unpacked trails, and going up and down hills. The hike is suitable for ages 9 and up. Masks must be worn during hike. Registration is required, and participation will be limited to 20. Register for a Tahquamenon Falls snowshoe hike online at tinyurl.com/4zhdhu8w.

Hartwick Pines State Park guided snowshoe hikes: Feb. 13 and 27, March 13

Enjoy a guided tour through the old-growth forest. Hear about the men and women who worked in the logging camps during the White Pine Logging Era and about the wildlife and trees that live and grow at Hartwick Pines State Park. Depending on the snow conditions, snowshoes may not be needed. Registration is required, and participation is limited. Register for a Hartwick Pines snowshoe hike at tinyurl.com/48hune9s or contact the Hartwick Pines Visitor Center at 989-348-2537 for more information.
