Allegany State Park Sunset Snowshoe or Evening Hike on Tuesdays

Every Tuesday in January and February, Starting at the Summit Warming Hut on the Red House side of the park, we will be hiking the new trail called Bear Paw dedicated to snowshoe use and hiking with dogs (as long as they are leashed). The 2.4 trail is easy - moderate with some slight elevation changes.

Participants should dress for the weather, bring a flashlight or headlamp, water, snack, and a sense of adventure. Everyone is welcome to stay after the hike to socialize in the Warming Hut. If there is no snow, we will just walk the trails of the Art Roscoe Area.
