Island Lake Recreation Area will be hosting another year of lantern-lit hikes along part of the Hickory Ridge hiking trail, beginning in the first parking lot of the Kent Lake unit. Hike, snowshoe or ski as you follow the lanterns for one mile to a warming station, complete with a campfire and hot chocolate with the Friends of Island Lake State Recreation Area.
You do not need to register for this self-guided hike. You may hike anytime from 6-9PM, and we will begin taking down the lights at 9PM at the turnaround. You’ll want to start by 8:15 to be able to enjoy the fire and hot chocolate.
We offer Milk Bones for your 4-legged friends.
A Recreation Passport is required for entry into the park.
