Sand Rock Cliffs Snowshoe

February 8, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

FREE
Winters are the most exciting and refreshing time to be an outdoor enthusiast! Join us for a moderate snowshoe hike at Sandrock Cliffs!

 

Snowshoe alongside the frozen St. Croix with a Park Ranger and a St. Croix River Association trail guide. We will wind through white pine plantations on the Sandrock Cliffs Trail with some moderate ups and downs. The highlight of the trail system is the sandstone cliffs located in a side channel of the river. This trail is best for snowshoers that have snowshoeing experience or are up for a challenge. Enjoy some hot beverages and community at the end of the snowshoe.

Trip rating: 3

Important reminders:

  • If this event is canceled due to inclement weather, we will post a notification on SCRA’s Facebook page and we will do our best to contact registered participants. In the event that there is no snow, this event becomes a winter walk.
  • If you have your own snowshoes, please bring them. Snowshoe rentals are also available at the Bloomington REI, some state parks, and some outfitters. If this is not possible, SCRA has a limited number of snowshoes available that participants can borrow for free.
