This event offers you the choice of a short hike or a longer hike:
- A relaxing easy 2.5-mile walk around the lovely East Head Reservoir trail. The walk generally takes about an hour and fifteen minutes to an hour and a half at a moderate pace. Fast walkers can do it it in less than an hour.
- If the snow allows, a group will continue for another 4 to 5 miles on trails off of the Bentley Loop. (A 7-mile hike in total when you add in the connector trail.) This whole trip takes at least three hours. Be sure to bring water and snacks with you!
Both groups will start off together from the amphitheater behind the forest headquarters on Cranberry Road. Dress in warm, breathable layers. If there is enough snow, snowshoes are welcome. Meet at 10:45am for an 11:00 hike start. Park in the main headquarters lot.
The restrooms at the headquarters will be open. After the hike, join the group for a campfire and hot cocoa.
