New Year's Day at Proud Lake

  • No location was chosen

  • This has been posted as an event by several groups. I'm planning to go but am not sure. You are welcome though to go and meet up with all these other groups.  If a group of us want to go, then we can arrange to meet there.

    As posted by Adventure Quest: 

    New Years Day at Proud Lake

    Wednesday, January 1, 2014

    1:00 PM

    Proud Lake State Recreation

    3500 Wixom Road , Wixom, MI (map)

    River Hawk Lodge & Conference Center is located at the far end of Park Headquarters Road.

    Join us for this annual event as a way to 'start the new year right' with some outdoor activities and socializing fun! The event starts at 1:00 and runs till sometimes at night. 

    Heavner's Canoe Rental organizes and Michigan DNR donates the use of the Proud Lake Recreation Area Red Hawk Lodge & Conference Center for this event which starts at 1:00 pm and lasts into the evening. Come for an hour or stay all day and into the night.

    If you're interested in leading an activity please send the Event Host an email to post details here - or add a comment below.

    Confirmed activity information is updated below; any additional updates will be posted in comments.

    Activities Available

    Hike - all hikes will start from the Red Hawk Lodge & Conference Center

    Adventure Quest will lead a fast paced 1-2 hour hike in the early to mid afternoon. Due to the pace and snow/ice conditions this hike is not appropriate for younger children.

    Adventure Quest will also lead another event later on. It will be either another hike, snowshoe hike or xc skiing. All depends on the snow conditions. More details will be posted closer to the event.

    SOLAR and BS Hiking will have hiking activities too.

    Snowshoeing - bring your own equipment or rent from Heavner's ($10/person). If you will plan on snowshoeing, it is a good idea to reserve a pair by calling Heavner's @ Proud Lake Park Headquarters Road is east (right) off Wixom Road.

    River Hawk Lodge & Conference Center (not the River Hawk Annex on the DNR map) is located at the end of the Proud Lake Park Headquarters Road.  There is a parking lot approximately 1/4 mile before the Conference Center; you can park on the road closer to the Center but there is no closer lot.

    Hope to see you there,

    I did go to the Proud Lake event on the 1st and had a great time. A group of us did a 2 hour walk and it was beautiful. There were many folks who showed up and tons of good food, hot coffee and hot chocolate. Oh and a group of musicians were there as well. All in all a fun event.

    Just an update, I'm trying to decide if we should go or not. This event is a joint one from about 4 groups so it will carry on even if some of us don't go. Just a bit concerned about the roads with the snow.

      Thx for letting me know Michael. I'm going to decide in the next hour.

      I just decided it will be a great day to stay home and keep watching the "House of Cards" on Netflix. Watch the snow through the window.

    If we get the snow predicted and you feel like the roads are bad, then please use caution. I may as well. If you don't feel safe driving, please don't.

    Try to meet around 1:30 pm at the lodge and we can go for a hike or join with another group if they have a hike.

    I just realized that there are two groups going at the same time an d same day, so I might see you all there.

    I'm hoping to try out my new cross country skis at this event if I haven't already! Decided to get a pair of skis that do not require waxing. My old ones I had to wax a lot even during the time I used them. Just had the bindings changed over to the new skis and I pick them up next week.

      It may just be hiking for those who don't canoe with the snow conditions today. We can also play some games inside.
