A Map of All the Wisconsin Winter Candlelight Hikes

December 5, 2019

Candlelight hikes are becoming more and more popular here in Wisconsin. It’s a perfect way to get outdoors and enjoy the winter landscape. Depending on the event, you can ski, snowshoe, or hike the lantern-lit trails. To see if there’s one near you, I’ve created a map of all the Wisconsin Winter Candlelight Hikes for 2020.

Keep in mind – some of the events are located within state parks so a vehicle sticker may be required. Simply click on the red marker to view the information and get in contact with the host!

Happy trails!
