Forest Service Ranger Led Snowshoe Treks

EVERETT, Wash., December 12, 2019 – Thinking about getting outdoors more often this winter? Looking for an opportunity to learn how to snowshoe? This winter’s your chance! Come explore your National Forests by joining a ranger-led interpretive snowshoe walk starting at Stevens Pass, Snoqualmie Pass, and the Big Four Picnic Area.

 From family-friendly snowshoe hikes through beautiful old-growth forest to intense treks into the backcountry, the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Snowshoe Program offers opportunities for visitors of all ages and experience levels to enjoy the outdoors this winter. Snowshoes are provided for all walks.

Reservations for ranger-led snowshoe walks at Snoqualmie and Stevens Pass can be made now at discovernw.org/store by selecting Snowshoe Walks. For snowshoeing opportunities at other locations, such as Big Four Ice Caves, check back in January once dates have been confirmed to make a reservation.

The 2020 season will operate Fridays through Sundays from January 3 through March 29 (depending on location). Donations to Discover Your Northwest are requested to offset program costs.

Grab your coat and mittens — we’ll see you in the snow!
