Snowshoe Hike

Saturday, January 25, 2014
10:00 a.m.

Come out to Flandrau State Park for a Snowshoe Hike on January 25 at 10:00 a.m.  Join the Scott Kudelka, Minneopa Area Naturalist to learn about snowshoeing and some practical advice on using snowshoes. 

 

We will take an hour and half hike on the park’s trails talking about the history of snowshoeing, unique characteristics of Flandrau and animal life in the winter.  Please meet at the park’s beach house.  Snowshoes can be rented at the park office.  Please contact them directly at (507) 233-9800.

 

Snowshoeing is probably the most accessible and easiest of all winter sports.  Basically if you can walk, you can snowshoe.  People have been using some form of snowshoes or skis to move across a snow-covered landscape for at least 6,000 years.

 

There is no charge to attend this event, but vehicles are required to have a permit ($5 daily or $25 year-round) which can be purchased at the park.
