Moonlight Snowshoe Hikes start this Saturday at Crawford Lake

Posted by on

Just because its winter, that’s no reason to stay in and hibernate! Why not get outside and participate in an ancient activity at Crawford Lake Conservation Area and experience the wonder of nature by moonlight. Let the staff at Crawford Lake lead you on a guided snowshoe hike.                         

The popular Moonlight Snowshoe hikes at Crawford Lake start this Saturday, January 18 and will continue every Saturday until the end of February. The hikes are from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Each hike begins with basic instruction and some historical background on the sport of snowshoeing. Next, you will strap on a pair of snowshoes, and take a guided trek through the Crawford Lake woodlands. Your guide will point out some of the natural features of the area, and motivate you along the way. At the end of the evening relax by a fire with a steaming hot chocolate.

The cost for the program is $16 for adults and $11 for seniors (ages 65 years and over) and children (ages 8 to 15 years) plus HST. This program requires pre-registration.

If you require snowshoe rentals, limited pairs are available for an additional fee, be sure to contact Crawford Lake customer service in advance by telephone 905-854-0234 or send an e-mail.

Please Note: in the event that we do not have enough snow to snowshoe, a guided evening hike, along with a fire and hot chocolate will be substituted. No refunds will be given for lack of snow.
