  • Family Friendly Halloween

    Join the Chippewa National Forest 11th annual Howl-O-Ween Scavenger Hunt at Shingobee Hills near Walker on Oct.25 from 6-8 p.m.

    Forest employees will be on hand to help visitors celebrate National Bat Week and complete a scavenger hunt along the short trail at the base of the popular Shingobee sledding hill. Visitors can park at the top of the hill and either hike down the sledding hill or take a marked trail to the historic Shingobee chalet.

    At the chalet, families can pick up their scavenger hunt cards and follow a ¼ mile pumpkin-lantern trail down the hill to find six bat trivia stations along with a number of familiar night critters hidden along the way. After, warm up with hot chocolate or roast a marshmallow over the campfire.

    Kids are encouraged to wear wildlife costumes! Bring warm clothes and a flashlight along to hike the trail to the chalet. In case of bad weather, the event will be rescheduled for Oct. 26 at 6 p.m.

    Registration required: No
