Beginner Snowshoe/Winter Hike at Housatonic Flats, Great Barrington

Nature and Recreation

January 22 | 10:00 am - 3:00 pm  

Free

Join GBLC and BNRC for a 1-mile beginner winter hike. We hope to snowshoe! If you don’t have your own, we will have some adult and kids pairs to loan. If there’s no snow, we’ll skip the snowshoes and go for a winter hike. We will review the basics of winter hiking like what traction to wear on your feet, how to layer properly, and what to look for!
