This event is SYOS (Bring Your Own Snowshoes)
Kicking off 2019’s Wednesday night events, you will have the chance to explore parts of the Congdon estate not normally traversed by the public. Check out the wooded area next to Bent Brook, and explore the Lake Superior shoreline.
As the chief 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. Plus, what we know today as Congdon Park, was given to the city by Chester with the promise that its cascading waterfalls and wilderness would remain wilderness as a park for the public.
Once you have hiked the snow-covered estate, head down to the lake to warm up next to a cozy bonfire.
