Lantern lighting the ski trail at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park

Join park staff for an evening snowshoe or cross-country ski adventure in the Porkies. Meet at the trailhead across from the entrance to the ski hill. Nearly 80 old-fashioned kerosene lanterns will illuminate a one-mile trail that will make for a unique and memorable experience. Stop at the warming shelter and enjoy a campfire and some refreshments about halfway around the loop. The ski trail has an “easy” difficulty rating; however, skiing or snowshoeing at night is always a challenge. The fun starts at 6 p.m. and generally lasts three hours. The events take place Saturday, Feb. 10 and Saturday, Feb. 24.

Please Note: The Michigan Department of Natural Resources makes every effort to provide the most up-to-date and accurate information on the web calendar. However, dates occasionally change and events may be canceled for any reason. Please call the unit hosting the event to confirm dates and times prior to your arrival.
