Northfield Mountain, Winter Solstice Walk
December 21, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
Winter Solstice Headlamp Hike
Celebrate the longest night of the year along the trails of Northfield Mountain. Join us as we illuminate the dark trails, enjoying quotes and history about winter solstice along the way. We’ll also observe the return of the light and the beginning of winter together in front of a warm and cozy campfire at a stop along the wooded path. Participants should bring a headlamp and dress in layers for hiking in winter weather and expect to hike up to 2 miles with an elevation gain of 300 feet. If our trails are open for skiing, snowshoes are required.
This program and snowshoe rentals are free. Pre-registration is required at www.bookeo.com/northfield.
