Full Moon Snowshoe Hike Set for March 7
Bolton Landing’s second annual Full Moon Snowshoe Hike will be held this year on Saturday, March 7.
Two treks have been planned for this year, said organizer Rachel Zuckerman, a member of the board of directors of the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the event. Both start at 6 pm.
According to Zuckerman, a hike for novices, or for those interested in a short, relatively easy hike, will be held at Up Yonda Farm.
For those interested in something more strenuous, a separate hike will take place at the Cat and Thomas Mountain Preserve. Hikers will meet at the preserve’s parking lot on Valley Woods Road and are requested to supply their own hiking poles, snowshoes, yaktrax, or microspikes.
“I also encourage people to wear headlamps in case it is very dark on the descent (although we’re hoping the moon will still illuminate enough for visibility, especially as it hits the snow, which I also hope we have,” said Zuckerman.
Up Yonda will supply equipment to those who lack it. Participants should plan to arrive at both locations at 5:45 or earlier.
Both hikes will be led by experienced guides, Zuckerman said.
As with last year’s event, the snowshoe hike will be followed by a Bolton Landing Restaurant Crawl in which participating restaurants will offer specially selected items and discounts to those who participated in one of the hikes.
