Celebrate National Winter Trails Day At Lone Pine State Park -Saturday, January 20, 2018 from 2-3:30pm

(Kalispell, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) will celebrate National Winter Trails Day with a hike at Lone Pine State Park on Saturday, January 20 from 2-3:30pm.

In honor of National Winter Trails Day, the park will offer free snowshoe rentals (weather dependent) along with a guided hike!  This time of year, the park looks unique with its snow-covered trees and wildlife tracked forest floor. Whether you’re experienced at snowshoeing or looking to try it for the first time, don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to enjoy the winter wonderland of the park.

The 1.5-hour hike starts at 2pm and will take place on foot if there is no snow.  Participants should be prepared for a moderately difficult trail with multiple elevation changes.  Snowshoes are available in both children’s and adult sizes on a first come, first served basis. Snowshoe users will only be charged for rental if they call to reserve pairs in advance of the hike.
