The public is invited to enjoy an evening by candlelight in Charles Lindbergh State Park Friday, Feb. 15 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. Participants can ski, snowshoe or hike 1.4 miles of trails with candle luminaries set along the way to guide their path. Afterward, visitors can relax in a 1938 wood-heated log-cabin style shelter building.
The lit trails will meander through stands of pine, oak and aspen and over Pike Creek. Ski rentals are available in Little Falls. Snowshoe rentals and vehicle permits are available at the park office.
A Minnesota State Parks vehicle permit is required to enter the park ($5/day or $25/year), but no additional charges or registration is necessary to participate in this event. In case of bad weather a message will be left on the park’s answering machine stating if the event will be cancelled.
For more event or area ski rental information, call the park at (320) 616-2525. The park is located at 1615 Lindbergh Drive S., on the southwest side of Little Falls.
