Local Cross-Country Ski, Hike, Snowshoe
Winter Trails Coordinator, Pat Marten
Members meet during January & February on an evening or weekend day. Depending on weather conditions we ski, snowshoe, or hike. Typically, après trail-time we re-gather at a nearby restaurant or the event leader's home for a potluck.
No cost, except park entrance fees. Some of the parks do rent skis. If needed, please call ahead and reserve them.
A great group of people take turns leading. Many thanks to all of them! If you'd like to host one contact our Winter Trails Coordinator
Hope to see you on the trails!
Wonderful local parks offer a terrific way to get out and enjoy the season with friends and family. Non-members are welcome!
