New Year's Eve Candlelight Hike

76 days old

Time: 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Activities: Candlelight events, Food, Hike, Night event, Outdoor activity
Location: Amnicon Falls SP

Get outdoors at Amnicon Falls on the last day of 2017! About 1.5 miles of trail will be illuminated with candles, including the island and Horton bridge where you can see three of the four park waterfalls. New for this year, visitors can check out the new contact station and visitor center. There will also be hot cider, hot chocolate, a bonfire, and materials for making s'mores! Sponsored by the Friends of Amnicon and Pattison state parks.

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.


Amnicon Falls SP information

Amnicon Falls State Park features a series of delightful waterfalls and rapids along the Amnicon River. You can view them from a covered foot bridge or trails along the river, or-if you're sure-footed-from the rocky shore of the river. The park is a place to picnic, camp, walk in the woods, and learn about the Douglas Fault, the geological formation that created the falls.
