Email News Alerts

A candle-lit trail event is set for Saturday, January 15 at Lake Carlos State Park in Alexandria.

These family-friendly events provide an opportunity to walk, hike, ski or snowshoe on trails illuminated by the glow of candles. Park visitors can then warm up around a fire and roast marshmallows or have a hot drink.


The candle-lit trails are flat and easy so that children and beginners can feel comfortable participating. Snowshoes can be rented for $6.
