Fort Stevenson holds Full Snow Moon Candlelight Hike
Garrison, ND - Fort Stevenson State Park is offering a special outdoor event on February 27. Experience a candlelit trail under the full moon in February known as the Snow Moon. Park staff will provide candle luminaries to light the approximately one-mile trail, illuminated from 6-7:30 p.m. Stop by the Visitor Center (open until 7:30 p.m.) to warm up in front of an outdoor fire. Pets on leashes are welcome.
Participants are invited to hike, cross country ski, snowshoe or kicksled their way along the trail. Our newest rental equipment offering, kicksleds, operates by kicking oneself forward as if on a scooter with skis. Snowshoes, Nordic skis and Kicksled rentals are available; contact the park office at 701-337-5576 to reserve.
