THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Candlelight Recreation at Crivitz on Feb. 16th
Issue Date: February 7, 2019
Gov. Thompson State Park in Crivitz will hold an evening of candlelit recreation on Feb. 16, from 6 to 9 pm. The park and trails will be lit by over 800 candle luminaries and accented with ice sculptures.
Skiers can take an easy 1-mile loop candlelit trail groomed for both classic (diagonal striding) and skate skiing as it weaves through the woods. Non-skiers are welcome to hike another 1-mile candlelit trail with scenic views over Woods Lake. Hikers, snowshoers and pets are not allowed on the ski trail, but are welcome on the hiking trail.
Warming fires and hot chocolate will be available for everyone in the Woods Lake Shelter. Vehicle admission (park sticker) is required and can be purchased at the park office the day of the event.
Trails start at the Woods Lake Picnic Area off of Paust Lane, 1.5 miles west of Parkway Road off Ranch Rd. For more information contact the park office at (715) 757-3979.
