• Guided Snowshoe Tours

  • Candlelight Snowshoe Tours - Level 1

    Come take a hike under the stars through the woods to a warm bonfire and hot chocolate. Rent a pair of our snowshoes and follow a candle-lit path through the woods beside a stream and surrounded by bluffs just one mile outside of Faribault.

    Check-in and snowshoe fitting occurs at the park for the first 20 minutes of the trip. Staff will be waiting in the parking lot to welcome you and get you outfitted. From there, the hike is at your pace. The trail is lined with candles so you can't get lost. A bonfire with hot chocolate awaits where the illuminated trails merge. When you are done for the evening, just let our staff at the bonfire know that you're heading out. Hike back to the parking lot and drop your snowshoes off by our trailer and you're free to leave.
