No child left inside! Come out and play in the snow with our Family Snowshoe Hike from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM.
This class and tour will start with some instruction where we will cover how to put on and take off your snowshoes, select the proper snowshoe, and dress for the outdoors in winter. After that we head out on the snow and learn how to get up from a fall, select a comfortable stride for walking and stomping, and turning around. Then we practice what you’ve learned as we explore. Exact location TBD based on conditions, but the two options are Atwood Park and Hononegah Forest Preserve.
The price for this experience is $25 for adults, $10 for kids 12 and under, and includes snowshoes, poles, and a $5 Rocktown gift certificate for adults. Please call the store at 815-636-9066 or sign up online to reserve your spot.
We need a minimum of 6 participants and the cooperation of Mother Nature to be able to Gear Up and Head Out in the snow. In the event we need to cancel a decision will be made 24 hours in advance. We will post on our website and Facebook, and contact all participants.
