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.

After skiing/hiking/snowshoeing…
· Warm yourself by the bonfire
· Bring your own food and grill outside
· Hot beverages will be handed out through the window of Trecker Lodge. Lodge will NOT be open to the public
Sponsored by WI DNR and Friends of Lapham Peak
