EVENT DETAIL

Snowshoe Hike at Dyer’s Creek

10:00 am - 1:00 pm

This activity will be a guided winter tour of Dyer’s Creek! When the snow is super deep and fluffy we will take out the snowshoes and float on top! We will outfit your boots with traction cleats for a non-slip hike when there are packed snow and icy conditions. This hike starts at the trailhead on the east side of Cook County 1 and after a quick trek through a coniferous forest, it crosses to the West Side of the road. Thick stands of fragrant Balsam/Spruce hug the corridor of the trail for 1 ½ miles until you reach your turn around point at a 40-foot A-frame bridge over Dyer’s Creek.  Check out one of the larger structures in the Superior Hiking Trail and learn how trail professionals and volunteers labored to install this magnificent structure.

Our activities department will make more definite announcements regarding the tours as we get closer to the date.
