Can I snowshoe? How do I do it? What stuff should I bring with me? Where can I go snowshoeing around here?
Join a Lake Wenatchee State Park Ranger for a fun, informative snowshoe hike and learn the answer to these questions (and more)! The hike will go for about a mile in easy terrain, with several stops along the way (suitable for the whole family). We will meet near the contact station at the north entrance of Lake Wenatchee State Park (watch for signs) on Saturday, January 15 at 1:00 pm.
To get there, take Highway 2 west from Leavenworth about 15 miles, turn right on Highway 207 for four miles, turn left into the north entrance of Lake Wenatchee State Park. Wear clothing appropriate for the weather and bring water. Parking will be free for snowshoe hike participants only (no SnoPark permit required for this event). Snowshoe rentals at a discounted rate will be available at Plain Hardware and Leavenworth Mountain Sports. Also, volunteers will be on hand to help people put on their snowshoes, and we will be giving away cool gifts from Leavenworth Mountain Sports!
Note: So far, we have plenty of snow this winter. However, if we happen to get a warm spell, please call the park at 509-763-3101 the day before the event to see if it is “still a go”.
