Curlicue Hill Snowshoe

Curlicue Hill in the Parrish Lake Road area off of Hwy 22 should be an ideal outing for a relatively fit snowshoer looking for first-time or second-time success.  Weather permitting, we will have several views of Jeff, Jack, and the Sisters.  If you are a strong snowshoer and want to come along as a mentor, that is fine, but don't expect to be allowed to charge ahead of the group.  I have three sets of loaner snowshoes and several sets of ski poles to accommodate most people's heights.  Call ahead to reserve.   Afterwards, we plan to stop for a bite to eat at a local eatery.
