Friday, December 21, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm – Solstice Headlamp Hike: It’s The End Of The World As We Know It


A holiday celebration for hikers and those who dare! This Northfield Mountain Recreation & Environmental Center sponsored romp will be on carriage width ski trails at Northfield. Our headlamps will light the way on this longest night of the year as we share facts and quotes to celebrate the winter solstice and explore the prophecy of the ancient Maya. A visit to a mid-mountain campfire and shared cider and snacks will sweeten this night as we turn towards the sun. Participants must bring a headlamp, dress in layers for hiking in winter weather and expect to hike 1 – 2 miles with an elevation gain of 300 feet. If our trails have sufficient snow, snowshoes are required. For ages 12 and over, free ($12 with snowshoe rental.) Pre-registration is required at 1-800-859-2960.
