Minneopa State Park is preparing for its annual candlelight hike in February
MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - Hikers will gather at the Group Camp in the park to embark on a nighttime hike lit by luminaries along the trail.
The hike is less than a mile long and is meant to be accessible to any skill level. Staff at Minneopa Park says the annual hike is meant to create a winter-time tradition.
”The candelight hike is a really great way to invite people to the state parks in the winter months,” said Ashley Steevens, Minneopa State Park manager, “It’s a time of year when a lot of folks don’t really think about visiting the state parks, and it’s a great, unique opportunity to see the park and enjoy it at night.”
The candlelight walk/hike will take place on Feb. 11 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
