Moonlight Walk to Sugar Island
Discover the splendors of Green Lake in the winter on a moonlight walk with the Green Team. Candles illuminate the path as participants make their way across the ice to Green Lake’s beautiful conservancy property, Sugar Island.
Following a short hike, participants can warm up and chat with friends and neighbors in front of a roaring bonfire. Hot chocolate will be provided by the Green Team, but please be sure to bring along your own cup or thermos. Make the experience complete by bringing along your own sandwiches, s’mores, or hot dogs to cook over the fire. A nearly full moon and a candle-lit trail will provide light, but participants might want to bring a flashlight for additional light while walking. Please note that the walk to and from Sugar Island is about half a mile. Have snowshoes or cross-country skis? Want to bring a sled for children? Bring them along!
GEAR TO BRING: Bring a cup or thermos for hot chocolate, and a flashlight for hiking. Feel free to bring snowshoes, or skis, though they are not required. Sleds are also welcome.
PARKING: Parking will be at Sunset County Park along CTH A in Green Lake, located next to the Green Lake Sailing School. From there, cross CTH A onto the frozen Silver Creek Inlet and follow the candle-lit luminaries that form a walking path. Volunteers will also be there to help guide participants. The walk is conducted at each individual’s leisure.
