Kingdom Trails will host a 1/2 mile self-guided, torchlit trail ski or snowshoe from the Darling Hill Nordic Center on the Bemis Trail. Bring a headlamp as the torches provide enough light to guide your way, but not enough to make out details.
When you arrive, check in at the Darling Hill Nordic Center for directions- or simply make your way to Bemis and head up to Junction #13 where you’ll find a fire and hot chocolate to warm you up.
Members and Day Pass holders are free. All others. $5.
