Snowshoes are provided, a $1 donation is requested to cover maintenance costs. Organized groups planning on attending a regularly scheduled walk must schedule a ranger-led snowshoe walk outside of regularly scheduled walks. Space is limited to 40 people per program. A ticket must be obtained in person the day of in order to attend the walk. Walks are open to those eight years of age and older; children in carriers are not allowed due to safety concerns.
