Solar Lit Trails

November 6, 2022 - March 12, 2023
Trails open until 9 p.m.

With the sun going down so early, there’s no time to play! Fear not, now you can get out on the trails everyday after dark. The District has two sites open late for hiking or cross-country skiing when the conditions are right. Learn more.

Trail Etiquette: When there is snow, hikers are asked to walk on the outside of the ski tracks.
