Snowshoe/Winter Hike near Sunset to Mahanna Cobble, Pittsfield 

Rescheduled for Sunday, March 13, 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm (* time changes on 3/13 so sunset is at 7 pm, but the hike will still start at 4:30pm ) 

Join us for a 3.2-mile out-and-back winter hike. If weather permits, we’ll snowshoe! If you don’t have your own, we will have some pairs to loan. If there’s no snow, we’ll skip the snowshoes and go for a winter hike! The hike involves climbing a good amount in elevation, but we will be going at an easy pace. Please note: the vista at Mahanna Cobble does not face west, but we will still enjoy being outside while the sun is setting!  

To RSVP email Mariah at mauman@bnrc.org and request to borrow micro-spikes and snowshoes if you need them.

Please bring water, wear sturdy footwear (consider snowshoes and/or micro-spikes) and bring layers. BNRC has a few pairs of micro-spikes to loan.
