Join the Allamakee County Conservation Board and Friends of Yellow River State Forest for a Fullmoon Snowshoe Hike on January 18, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. The hike will take place in the Luster Heights Unit of Yellow River State Forest. The hike will be approximately 3 miles with views of the Mississippi River. Participants should meet at the Luster Heights Unit parking lot at 481 Luster Heights Road, Harpers Ferry.
The Fullmoon Snowshoe will be a guided trail hike taking place after dark to enable the participants to see the stars and fullmoon like they have never seen before. The event requires preregistration for those wishing to use snowshoes provided by the ACCB and is open to all ages. However, anyone under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. In the case of inclement weather or poor snow conditions the Fullmoon Snowshoe may be postponed or cancelled and will be announced via the ACCB’s Facebook page.
Appropriate sized snowshoes and trekking poles will be provided to individuals who do not have their own equipment with preregistration. Participants should dress for the weather with appropriate layers including outerwear, winter hats, gloves, and waterproof boots. A headlamp or small flashlight is also recommended, but not required.
