Participants are asked to park at the Montreal City Hall where they will be shuttled to the trail head. Children will be able to participate in a scavenger hunt! After the snowshoe event, please stop by the City Hall for a community bonfire, soup bar, hot chocolate and apple cider provided by Iron County 4-H. If you don't have any snowshoes, don't worry!
