Candlelight Hike


The Candlelight Hike scheduled for February 13, 2021 has been postponed due to the sub-zero temps expected to continue through the weekend, with the new date now Saturday, February 20, 2021. 




Experience the magic of snowshoeing and hiking on candle-lit trails. The trails of Castle Creek Conservancy will be lit with candles for this hike. Participants will be able to explore  on this self-guided hike. The hike will start at the Conservancy's entrance on Division Street. Get outside with the entire family and enjoy this enchanting event.  Be sure to dress for the weather. Children ages 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
