Friends of Harrington Beach

Winter at Harrington Beach

Are you itching to slap on the skis to do some cross country at Harrington?  How about enjoying all the wildlife while breathing the fresh air?  Bring your four-footed buddy to walk the South Beach designated dog area.  Bicycling along the Stonehaven trail will net you a three mile spin.  Or walk the trails and listen to the chickadees.  

Fall colors may be gone but there is a wildness about bleak mid-winter and a beauty in the crisp cold air.  Even though we don't have snow at this writing, hope is high for the white stuff to come.

Our winter hike day are set up for you to come to the Ansay Welcome Center for hot beverages and hot dogs.  Games will be out on the table or bring your own.  A fire in the fire place will be going.  See the Events tab at the top of this page.  

All vehicles are required to pay an admittance fee.  If the Entrance Station is closed, please self register at the box past the stop sign.
