Weather UPDATE: The Be BLISSFUL snowshoe hike is still taking place on Saturday, February 23 at Hartman Creek State Park. Please make your own assessment in regards to travel in the possible wintry road conditions to the event. Be Safe. Be Blissful. Be Winter.
Be Community. Warm your heart and bring your tribe. Come ready to meet new friends and deepen friendship with those you’ve known a long time. Winter hiking keeps you connected to the simple things in life: health and vigor; home and tribe.
Be Resilient. A winter’s day hike encourages health and resilience. Nourish your body and soul with some fresh-air time outdoors, even during the cold wintery days of the year.
