Candlelight Ski and Hike, Kettle Moraine State Forest (Southern Unit)
January 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Classic ski or hike the 1.6 mile purple loop through the woods while illuminated by candlelight. Food will be for sale by the Kettle Moraine Nha or bring your own to cook over the bonfire or grill. Dogs are allowed on leash for this event. Price is $5 per car load or a 2019 state park sticker on your car ($28 for WI plates).
The trail will be groomed for classic skiing – no skate skiing or skijoring. Pets are allowed on the ski trail – for this event only. All vehicles will need a vehicle admission sticker. The Nordic Trail is located on Hwy H – about 4 miles south of Palmyra and 1.5 miles north of LaGrange. Get Directions.
Candlelight skis/hikes are very popular events at DNR properties, with some attracting thousands of visitors on a given night. Given the recent publicity of these events through social media outlets and the department’s responsibility to provide a safe recreational experience, access to these events may be restricted at times when parking capacity has been reached. Thank you for helping make these events a success.
