Steep Rock Association in Washington will offer a guided backcountry snowshoeing event Jan. 28 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The two-mile hike is expected to be moderately difficult due to uneven terrain beginning at the Steep Rock Preserve parking lot located at 2 Tunnel Road.

In case of rain, the hike would be canceled.

Registration is available at or by calling the office at 860-868-9131.

Participants should wear warm clothing and bring snowshoes, if available.

Those without snowshoes should share their height and weight when registering so Steep Rock Association can provide snowshoes.

Snowshoe rental is donated by Sportsmen’s of Litchfield.

Registration is required and donations are accepted.
