GO-Get Outdoors event at Fayette State Park

Sun, Jan  20, 2008 - By DNR

Fayette Historic State Park will host its second annual “GO-Get Outdoors” winter activity on Saturday, Jan. 26, from 6 to 8 p.m.

“This is a great chance to ‘GO-Get Outdoors’ and experience Fayette in a whole new ‘light,’ whether you choose skis, snowshoes or mukluks - all are welcome,” said Park Supervisor Randy Brown. “The hiking trail along the bluff presents a beautiful backdrop for this unique experience.”

The event is illuminated by old fashioned kerosene lanterns for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or hiking around the unique bluff trail, and includes hot chocolate and marshmallows around a crackling campfire. Visitors are asked to park in the plowed area behind the contact station. From there, a friendly fire will mark your starting point.

The modern Furnace Hill Lodge at Fayette Historic State Park is available to rent this winter season. Rates are $100 per night, Sunday through Thursday, and $125 on Friday and Saturday nights. For more information about the event or the lodge, contact Fayette Historic State Park at 906-644-2603, or write to 13700 13.25 Lane, Garden, MI 49835.

All motor vehicles entering a state park or recreation area must display a Motor Vehicle Permit, available for purchase at the entrance. Cost is $24 for resident annual and $6 for resident daily. A non-resident annual is $29 and a non-resident daily is $8.
