1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

 

Snowshoeing is a great low impact aerobic activity and the fastest growing winter sports activity. Plus it gets you outdoors in the beautiful scenery. Come experience the pleasure of snowshoeing during our KlehmArboretum Snowshoe Hike. Can’t wait to see what this area is like in winter.

This snowshoe hike will have an instructional component to it, so come for the fun, walk away with the knowledge. We will start with 20-30 minutes of indoor instruction at the Clarcor Building, where you will learn how to put on and take off your snowshoes, select the proper snowshoe, and dress for the outdoors in winter. After that, we head out and learn how to get up from a fall, select a comfortable stride for walking and stomping, and turning around. The rest of our time is spent exploring the Arboretum. After the hike, we will have a fire pit, hot chocolate, and S’mores!
