Discover Northerly Island by snowshoe this winter during Snowtrekking on select Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weather permitting.
Get a new perspective of our city's natural area while exploring the Island for winter birds, native animals, or enjoy the incredible view of Chicago?s skyline. Participants can also enjoy a good old fashioned snowball fight, build a snowman or two and take a break from the cold weather by warming up inside the field house.
The cost is $5 to check out a pair of snowshoes for two hours on a first-come, first-served basis with a valid I.D. If you have your own equipment, it is free to trek around Northerly Island! There must be at least three inches of snow for us to host Snowtrekking.
