Moonlight events at Afton

Afton State Park is holding a evening of winter events on Saturday, Feb. 6. From 6-9 p.m. the public is invited to hike, ski or snowshoe along a two-mile trail lit with candle luminaries, then warm up around the park's wood stove and enjoy some hot cider and other refreshments. Halfway around the loop, participants can see the park's new camper cabin and enjoy a bonfire.

The event, which starts at the Afton visitor center, is free, but a daily or annual vehicle permit is needed to enter the park. In case of poor weather, the back-up date will be Saturday, Feb. 13.
