Sunset Snowshoes Begins This Week At Duluth’s Glensheen Mansion
Wednesday night, Glensheen Mansion kicks off a free series of events that will be sure to please outdoor enthusiasts for weeks to come!
Beginning January 18, Sunset Snowshoes happens every Wednesday night in January and February from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the grounds of the historic Glensheen estate.
As Glensheen Mansion notes, you can't ask for better scenery as you explore the snowy estate with the backdrop of a Lake Superior sunset via snowshoe. You can also check out the wooded area next to Bent Brook or Tischer Creek and explore the Lake Superior shoreline via old-school wood snowshoes.
As the main 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, many of which can still be enjoyed today.
If you don't have snowshoes, Glensheen will have free snowshoes available for guests to use each Wednesday. However, since snowshoes are limited guests are asked to please bring their own snowshoes if they have a pair.
It's important to note that snowshoes are not required to explore the grounds during this event, a good pair of boots can work too. Guests can still hike the estate with boots if there is not enough snow.
Glensheen Mansion hosts many free Wednesday night events for community members in the surrounding area and Sunset Snowshoes is always a highlight.
Sunset Snowshoes officially runs from January 18 through February 22, 2023.
