Winter Guided Walks and Snowshoe Tours
February 2, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until March 30, 2013
The Staff and Docents at Calaveras Big Trees State Park will be offering free guided walks on Saturdays at 1:00 P.M. this winter. The North Grove of Big Trees provides different opportunities for learning and recreation during each season, with brilliant fall colors, the quiet beauty of winter snow, and dogwood blossoms in the spring. Interested visitors should meet their guide near the Warming Hut in the North Grove parking lot no later than 1:00 P.M. The walks will last 1.5 to 2 hours and are limited to 30 people. Depending on snow conditions, the walk may take place in the North Grove, or other nearby locations. Visitors must be in good physical condition and prepared for current weather in order to participate. This may mean snow boots, waterproof outer layers, hat and gloves. When there is enough snow in the park, the walk will become a snowshoe walk. A limited number of snowshoes are available to borrow at the Warming Hut – check there for availability. Guided Walks will be cancelled in case of hazardous weather, trail or road conditions. Groups of ten or more must call in advance to participate in a guided tour.
The regular tours are free with the $8.00 per car park entrance fee.
