Registration

Registration is required for this activity. Please contact leader(s).

Overview

This is an early winter opportunity to learn (or re-learn) and practice winter hiking and snowshoeing skills. We'll go over safe methods for traveling, hydrating, eating, watching the weather and - most of all-enjoying winter walks. If there is snow, we'll practice snowshoeing. There is usually ice to be found at Bradbury Mountain State Park so bring micro-spikes or other ice traction equipment. An easy hike to the top of the mountain yields great views. The total distance will be around 2 miles including a climb of approximately 400 feet. Please indicate your level of experience when you contact us. We will provide you with details about the hike including a recommended gear list and are happy to answer any questions. There is a $3/per adult entrance fee to the park.
