Hike/Snowshoe at Crabtree Nature Center - 3.5 miles

Let's do the 3 and 1/2 mile hike at Crabtree.  

The weather is supposed to be warm (yes, 30 is warm) but the snow will be high.

Crabtree has snowshoes available to use for free on a first come, first serve basis.  I think they have at least a dozen pair available.

We will go to Buona Beef at Higgins and Barrington Rd. for lunch afterwards. 

Note: Dogs are not allowed in Crabtree Nature Center.  :-(

See you there!

    I talked to Crabtree and they said they have at least 20 pair of snowshoes in various sizes. We just have to have them back by 1pm for a reserved snowshoe class. If you are going to use their snowshoes, please get there a little early so we are all ready to go at 11am. Thanks.
