In Marinette, The Wisconsin DNR is hosting a candlelight ski and hike on Saturday, Feb. 12 at the Gov. Thompson State Park. Hours are 6-9 p.m. The park and trails will be lit by more than 800 candle luminaries and accented with ice sculptures!

Skiers can take an easy 1-mile loop candlelit trail groomed for both classic (diagonal striding) and skate skiing as it weaves through the woods. Non-skiers are welcome to hike another 1-mile candlelit trail with scenic views over Woods Lake. Hikers, snowshoers and pets are not allowed on the ski trail but are welcome on the hiking trail.

Warming fires and hot chocolate will be available for everyone in the Woods Lake Shelter. Vehicle admission (park sticker) is required and can be purchased at the park office the day of the event. Trails start at the Woods Lake picnic area and shelter.
