ROGERS CITY – Cross country skiers, snowshoers and hikers will have two chances to see the woods along Lake Huron’s shore, guided by the flickering glow of more than 200 lanterns along a trail in Hoeft State Park.

The state park will host its annual Winter Nights and Lights event Saturday from 6-9 p.m., and again on Feb. 16 at the same time, park accounting assistant Karen Schulte said. These after-dark hikes have been going on at the park since 2008 and bring out a good-sized crowd of all ages.
