Eagle Lake Ranger District to host snowshoe walks
Jan. 26, 2013 — There’s nothing quite like spending time in the forest during the winter. A snowshoe walk in the Lassen National Forest (Forest) could be the perfect opportunity for you to take in the crisp, fresh air and enjoy the quiet beauty of the season.
Fortunately, the Eagle Lake Ranger District will begin its winter snowshoe walks and education program in February. This is your chance to enjoy a unique recreation activity and learn more about the forest and wildlife in winter.
Suitable for beginners and up, the first snowshoe walk is planned for 3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6. The location is to be determined, depending on snow conditions. The walk will last for an hour to an hour and a half. Cross-country skiers are welcome to join in.
Additional walks open to the public will be announced as they are scheduled. Special snowshoe walks are available by request for school and educational programs.
If you plan to participate, be sure to dress in layers and bring snow boots, gloves, a hat and sunglasses. You should also bring water and snacks. The Forest will provide the snowshoes.
If you are interested in participating, you are asked to reserve a space. For more information or to reserve a space, call the Eagle Lake Ranger District at 257-4188.
