DINGMANS FERRY — The Pocono Environmental Center in Dingmans Ferry offers many miles of trail for hiking and, when conditions are right, snowshoeing.
And from 1 to 4 p.m. this Saturday, PEEC will be offering a free lesson in snowshoeing on the nearby McDade Recreational Trail, the 33-mile multi-use trail that extends from Milford Beach to just north of the Water Gap.
Skis, poles, and boots will be provided. Register with your shoe size to guarantee a spot. No experience is necessary.
The lesson is made possible by Bridge the Gap date funding provided by the William Penn Foundation.
