186 days old

Time: 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Activities: Candlelight events, Cross country ski, Food, Hike, Night event, Outdoor activity, Snowshoeing
Location: Newport SP

Experience winter beauty at Newport State Park! Ski, hike or snowshoe a 1.2-mile easy trail. The trail starts at the Picnic Area parking lot (Lot #3). There will be a shelter with refreshments and cookies, a lit fireplace and grill, and a bonfire to greet participants at the end of the trail. This event will be held with or without adequate snow for skiing.

Candlelight skis/hikes are very popular events at DNR properties, with some attracting thousands of visitors on a given night. Given the recent publicity of these events through social media outlets and the department's responsibility to provide a safe recreational experience, access to these events may be restricted at times when parking capacity has been reached. Thank you for helping make these events a success.
