Candlelight event

If candlelight events are not already an annual tradition for you, let this be the season where you get out and experience winter adventure in a whole new light!

Short, easy trails will be lit with lanterns or luminaries, and you can drop in any time during the events to go whatever distance is comfortable for you. Afterward, warm up with refreshments by a crackling fire.
