Come join us for Cornwall’s Snowfest Snowshoe & Bonfire Event! February 19th, 2020
The Twilight Snowshoe – a hike through the Hyde Pond trail system, where we could hear some owls call and watch the winter stars as they set over the creek waters before heading back for a warm bonfire.
In partnership with the Town and the Department of Forest, Fish & Wildlife, we will offer a glimpse into local wildlife and fur-bearing winter animals with a table set up full of fury friends we may see and hear in the night. A bonfire to follow with hot chocolate to warm your nose 🙂 A night for all to come together, as there will be snow shoes for rent- but we do encourage those with their own snowshoes to bring them for the hike! See You There!
