Mike and Becky Porter have been organizing a hike on Balsam Lake Mountain on Super Bowl Sunday for as long as we can remember. It is a fun hike, sometimes with snowshoes, sometimes not. 3 miles to the fire tower, where hikers picnic on the lunch they’ve packed. 6 miles total. Becky says “sleds are optional- they are fun on the steep parts!!” — her favorite part of the day.
Becky also says “summiting is overrated” …so sometimes if the snow is deep or the ice is bad the group may not make it to the Fire Tower.
Plan to bring warm drinks, water and good snacks. Dress in warm layers, hand warmers suggested.
Meet in Margaretville at 10 or at the trailhead on Millbrook Rd at 10:15. Contact Becky Porter at firstname.lastname@example.org for Margaretville meeting location and for more information.
No Dogs please.
