Candlelit Snowshoe Hike

Candlelit Snow Shoe
Saturday January 21, 2017

Over 1500 people attend this annual event at Woodland Park and Aldo Leopold Nature Center.  Candles softly glow throughout the trail as participants hike through.  Free hot chocolate, popcorn and s’mores will be served.  A roaring bonfire will keep everyone warm.  Snowshoes are available for those who do not bring their own.   This is a free family event, and sponsorship helps defray the cost of hosting the event. In the past we have partnered with the Aldo Leopold Nature Center and the City of Madison Parks  Department for a very long beautiful lit path through Woodland Park, the Aldo Leopold Nature Center, and Edna Taylor Conservancy.
