From: Hartwick Pines State Park
Guided Snowshoe Hike
Hartwick Pines State Park will offer guided snowshoe hikes through the old growth forest on Jan. 5 and 19, Feb. 2 and 16, and March 2. These hikes will give visitors to Hartwick Pines a chance to try out snowshoes and hike through the Lower Peninsula’s largest stand of old-growth white pines. Guided by a park interpreter or historian, participants will learn about the forest in the winter and discover the importance of winter to Michigan’s logging industry in the 1800s, all while getting great exercise. This event is free of charge, although a Michigan State Parks Recreation Passport is required for park entry. Please call ahead for snow conditions. (989) 348-2537.
