Castle in the Clouds and the Moultonborough Recreation Department have teamed together in hosting a Winter Starlight Hike/Snowshoe!

Make the most of a beautiful winter evening in New Hampshire with a nighttime stroll through the woods on the Shannon Pond Trail at Castle in the Clouds! This hike is self-guided, so you can walk at your leisure and even do the trail more than once if you like. The trail will be marked with starry luminaries and lighted mason jars. This is a great way to get the family out for some good old fresh air! Reservations are not required.

Stay for Treats and Stargazing!

After the hike, warm up by a fire pit and enjoy complimentary hot cocoa and treats. We will have a telescope in the field so you can get an up close and personal look at the moon and stars. There is plenty of room, so feel free to bring your own star-gazing equipment if you’d like!

Prepare for the Trail

The proposed hiking trail is easy, family friendly and less than a mile.  Please dress appropriately for the weather –  wear warm, winter hiking boots and feel free to bring snowshoes if there is snow on the ground! We recommend bringing your own headlamp or flashlight for added visibility.

The event is put on in partnership with the Moultonborough Recreation Department and supported by:
