2017 Snowshoe Hike

It is our annual snowshoe hike along the Winter River trail. Meet with volunteers and staff from our watershed group to hike along the trail and learn a few things along the way.

We will be meeting at 10am on Saturday February 18. The starting point is the trail head at the end of the East Suffolk Road. The trail leads to the family cabin of one of our volunteers, where we will take a break with chili, cookies, and hot chocolate. Then choose between taking the short route back to the parking area, or exploring more of the Winter River trail system on your own.

Please bring your own snowshoes. If you do not have snowshoes but would like to attend, please contact us in advance so we can arrange to get you a pair (902-314-9293 or info@WinterTracadie.ca).

If you are bringing a dog, please keep it on a leash.

If you are worried about the distance, such as travelling with small children, ask us about the option of taking a shorter route to the cabin.

If weather conditions are not suitable, the alternate date for this event will be February 25th. Check this page or our Facebook event page for updates. https://www.facebook.com/events/1272029956196651/
