Outdoor Winter Fun

With so much snow on the ground already, this promises to be an exceptionally good winter for outdoor recreation.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says, among the family-friendly fresh air fun is candlelight events at Minnesota state parks and trails.

Candlelight events provide an opportunity to walk, hike, ski, or snowshoe on trails illuminated by the warm glow of candles. Park and trail visitors can then warm up around a cozy fire and roast marshmallows or enjoy a hot drink.

Candlelight Ski/Snowshoe/Hike Charles A. Lindbergh State Park at Little Falls will host a Candlelight event for skiing, snowshoeing and hiking Saturday, January 22nd from 6-9 p.m.

Most candle-lit trails are relatively flat and easy, so that kids and beginners can feel comfortable participating.

The candlelight events at Minnesota state parks and trails are free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks. Vehicle permits ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit) can be purchased from the parks.
