Join in the Winter in the Woods festivities and participate in the Winter Hike! Hike on one of two self-guided trails at the Brown County State Park; starting points at the Nature Center and Recreational Hall. Along both routes, DNR interpreters will greet hikers with winter wildlife facts and Local Boy Scout Troop 190 will prepare s’mores for a welcomed hiker snack. Warm drinks will also be available at the Abe Martin Lodge. Donations accepted.
