Join Northfield Mountain staff Beth Bazler for a holiday celebration for hike lovers on Saturday, December 21 from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. This romp will be on the carriage width ski trails at Northfield. Our headlamps will light the way on this longest night of the year as we share solstice facts and quotes from literary lovers of the night. A visit to a mid-mountain campfire and shared cider and snacks will sweeten this night as we turn toward the sun. Participants should bring a headlamp, dress in layers for hiking in winter weather and expect to hike 1 ½ miles with an elevation gain of 300'. If our trails are open for skiing, snowshoes are required. This event is free and appropriate for ages 11 and older. Please pre-register by calling Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center at 1-800-859-2960.
