Torch Light Trek set at Al Quaal

ISHPEMING – The Ishpeming Torch Light Trek youth cross country ski event will be held at 6 p.m. Jan. 24 at the Al Quaal Recreation Area on the north side of Ishpeming.

A short loop will be groomed on the School Trail just east of Birchview School and tiki torches will be lit to guide the way. The Torch Light Trek is geared for youths who are just learning or have never tried cross country skiing, but everyone is welcome. Participation is free and kids will receive a commemorative ribbon as a keepsake from the event.

Limited free rental equipment will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Adults and kids who have their own equipment are encouraged to bring their gear and participate.
