    Moderate

Join us for a sunset snowshoe adventure and enjoy the cool air, quiet and beauty of a landscape blanketed in snow. This is a five-mile out and back snowshoe through dense forest and a gradual climb to scenic June Lake, where the waterfalls often freeze revealing a dazzling display of ice and snow on the boughs of the sugar-covered conifers. We will snowshoe back in the waning sunlight, with heightened senses to the sounds of the forest and rushing Swift River. Transportation, snowshoes, trekking poles, and headlamps are provided. This is an amazing winter adventure with or without snow!
