Moonlight Snowshoe


Jan 9, 2019 to Jan 30, 2019
06:30 PM until 08:30 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Wednesday.


Join us for a moonlight hike on the 12-acre, lakeside estate at Glensheen with Day Tripper of Duluth as your guide.

Kicking off 2019’s Wednesday night series, you will have the chance to explore parts of the Congdon estate not normally traversed by the public. Check out the wooded area next to Bent Brook, explore the Lake Superior shoreline and head down the recently restored Serpentine Wall staircase to Tischer Creek.

As the chief visionary for the North Shore Scenic Drive, Chester Congdon was big on the preservation of the North Shore’s natural beauty. He embraced Northern Minnesota’s landscape by incorporating his own personal hiking trails on Glensheen’s estate. Also, what we know as Congdon Park, was given to the city by Chester with the promise that its cascading waterfalls and wilderness would remain wilderness as a park for the public.

Once you have hiked the snow-covered estate, head down to the lake to warm up next to the cozy bonfire.

The event is free and open to the public, from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm every Wednesday night in January.

Glensheen will have snowshoes available for use! Since the snowshoes are limited, please bring your own snowshoes if you have a pair.

Snowshoes are not required, a good pair of boots works too. If there is not enough snow, we will still hike the estate via boots.

RSVP is not required but encouraged. Please mark that you are ‘going’ in the Facebook event if you plan to attend.
