Snowshoe walks will be offered twice on March 13. Meet the park ranger at the Loomis Ranger Station at 10:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. The Loomis Ranger Station is located along the Main Park Road just two miles from the north entrance off of Highway 44. The 1 ½ to 2 hour programs provide a unique look into the mysterious world of winter, and learn how wildlife adapt and survive in this snowy environment. The walks will provide participants with instruction on the proper techniques of snowshoeing, tips on outdoor survival, and safety considerations needed for winter mountain travel.
Join a ranger on Saturday, March 13 for a special snowshoe walk at the Manzanita Lake area near the north entrance of Lassen Volcanic NationalPark. “We are committed to First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign to increase daily exercise for a healthier tomorrow. The two programs offered at Manzanita Lake will be an opportunity for visitors to increase physical activity and experience the beauty of the park” Stated Superintendent Darlene Koontz.
The walks are open to individuals and families with children age eight and older. For safety reasons, infants and children in carriers are not permitted. Walks vary in route and distance depending on the group, weather, and snow conditions. Snowshoes are provided by the National Park Service for a suggested $1.00 donation for their use and maintenance. Please dress in layers for winter conditions and wear warm boots
