Fullmoon Snowshoe Hike January 18

Join the Allamakee County Conservation Board (ACCB) and the Friends of Yellow River State Forest for a Fullmoon Snowshoe Hike January 18 at 6:30 p.m. The hike will take place in the Luster Heights Unit of Yellow River State Forest, approximately three miles with views of the Mississippi River.

Participants should meet at the Luster Heights Unit parking lot located at 481 Luster Heights Road, Harpers Ferry.

The Fullmoon Snowshoe will be a guided trail hike taking place after dark to enable participants to see the stars and full moon. The event requires pre-registration for those wishing to use snowshoes provided by the Allamakee County Conservation Board and is open to all ages. However, anyone under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. In the case of inclement weather or poor snow conditions the Fullmoon Snowshoe may be postponed or canceled and will be announced via the Allamakee County Conservation Board’s Facebook page.

Appropriate-sized snowshoes and trekking poles will be provided to individuals who do not have their own equipment with preregistration. Participants should dress for the weather with appropriate layers including outerwear, winter hats, gloves and waterproof boots. A headlamp or small flashlight is also recommended, but not required.
