FEBRUARY 26, 2021 

The 4th annual Hygge Hike will be taking place on Saturday, February 26, from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Historic Montreal Ski Trails. This event is being planned in partnership between NICER and the Penokee Rangers Trail Corps, Inc.

Following the success of last year's family friendly event, Hygge Hike at Night, organizers decided to continue the candlelight snowshoe theme. Participants will arrive to find a variety of luminaries lining the 1.5 mile route along a portion of the Historic Montreal Ski Trails, with 4  bonfires, Swedish torches, hot chocolate, and a few other surprises along the way. Participants are also encouraged to wear anything that GLOWS to help light up the night (glow sticks, LED light vests, reflective clothing...get creative)!

Don't have snowshoes? We have you covered! The Extension Iron County office will have their community snowshoes available to use for FREE, with kids and adult sizes to choose from. 

A $10 suggested donation per family will be collected at the trailhead, with proceeds to benefit NICER and the Penokee Rangers (who maintain the Historic Montreal Ski Trails on a volunteer basis). Parking will be limited. Please see our parking details in the section below. 

Even though this is a dog friendly trail system, we ask that you leave your dogs at home during this event (for liability reasons). 

If you would like to volunteer at this year's Hygge Hike at Night, we would love the extra help! We invite anyone interested in volunteering to arrive at the Rose Wreath Trailhead at 10:30 am the day of the event to assist with luminary set up. Volunteers will also be needed to light the luminaries starting at 4:45 pm. If you have any questions, please reach out to NICER at benicer@nicer715.com.
