The Peninsula State Park cross-country ski trails are currently not groomed or open. The Friends of Peninsula State Park, however, are not letting that get in the way of an annual park event. The candlelight ski/hike will take place Saturday, February 2nd. The one-mile trail can be covered by people of all ages and skill levels and will be lined with candles to guide participants along. Friends of Peninsula State Park Business Manager Steve Strucely says those come out will get a different perspective on the park.
The candlelight ski/hike at Peninsula State Park runs from 5:30 to 8:00 PM. It's s free, though you will need a vehicle pass to get into the park. People are asked to enter at Highland Road. The event will take place with or without snow and will only be canceled in the event of severe weather.
