Join with other winter enthusiasts and explore the woods on snowshoes at the annual guided Snowshoe Trek offered on Sunday, February 2 or Sunday, February 9 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Heritage Park. Snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy winter outdoors on the trails!
The Snowshoe Treks are open to ages six through adult. The cost for the trek is $5 per person; snowshoe rentals will be available at the Nature Center for an additional $5 fee. Snowshoe lessons and a guided hike will be provided by a naturalist.
Please register for the trek in person at the Costick Center located at 28600 Eleven Mile Road or online at http://recreg.fhgov.com. If there is no snow on those dates, the group will walk the nature trails.
The Farmington Hills Nature Center and Heavner Canoe Rental have partnered to offer snowshoe rentals in adult and kids’ sizes at the Nature Center front desk through March. Snowshoe rentals are $7 per person. Snowshoe participants should dress in layers for the weather and wear sturdy boots.
