About This Activity

Head to Niagara for a fun-filled night on the trails. Nothing is more magical than a trail in the forest full of flickering lights, the beautiful moon hanging in the sky, and glowing bags giving the beautiful Niagara Trails a fairy-tale aura.

These remarkable trails located on the Memoninee River in northern Wisconsin provide the setting for this one of a kind night-time snowshoe and cross country ski event.  A bonfire will be available for event goers to warm up. The event features a lighted loop, hot drinks, hot dogs, and fun around the campfire on the Niagara Riverside trails. If you do only one thing outdoors this winter, do it by candlelight.
