Saturday Snowshoe Rental | Kids Out and About Rochester

Saturday Snowshoe Rental

When the snow starts falling, Helmer Nature Center is a great place for winter sports. Our trails are free to access and open daily from sunrise to sunset for winter hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. For those in need of snowshoes, HNC offers snowshoe rentals on Saturday afternoons when trail conditions are favorable (6 - 8 inch snow base required).

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.
ring your family on Saturdays in January and February from 1 PM to 3 PM for snowshoe rental (all sizes – pre-school to adult) and take a self-guided tour of the Nature Center in winter.
Please consult our Facebook page to confirm trail conditions. Pre-registration NOT required. No Snowshoe on January 15 or February 5 due to conflicting Nature Center events.
DATES: Most Saturdays in January and February (not 1/15 or 2/5) when there is an adequate snow base of 6-8 inches. Check our Facebook page for updates.
