Snowshoeing at Rib Mountain State Park

Snowshoeing at Rib Mountain State Park

The Friends of Rib Mountain invite you to join us in exploring Rib Mountain State Park on snowshoes. Candlelight snowshoe walks will be held Saturday, January 19 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. and on Saturday, February 23 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. (flashlights and headlamps suggested). There is no cost to participate, and of course, there will be hot chocolate, hot cider, and special goodies, as well as marshmallows to roast around the campfire. Start your hike at the newly constructed Friends Gathering Space, just past the park office. Some snowshoes will be available to borrow but we strongly suggest you bring your own or rented snowshoes to this popular event. Donations to cover costs are welcome. A park annual or daily admission sticker is required. Parking is limited, so please consider carpooling if possible.

For more information, or if the weather is questionable, you can check the Friends website at www.ribmountain.org or call the Park office at 715-842-2522.
