On Wednesday, October 24th there will be a full moon shining down on Ellenwood Park – just the perfect time for a fall hike! The Friends of Ellenwood Park will meet everyone at the Mood Road gate at 7:00 pm for an easy 5 km hike around the Park (’til about 9:00pm). It’s a great opportunity to practise your night photography skills or just to enjoy the moonlight. Parents are encouraged to bring the kids, but be mindful of the demand on little legs.

Warm clothing and proper footwear are important for a good experience and you can bring a flashlight along – just in case. Like all of our events, this is weather dependent so check back here or on our Facebook page for last minute changes or updates before heading out.
There’s a full moon on the rise at the end of April! Although the Friends of Ellenwood will not be hosting a night hike into the Park on the 29th, we encourage all you enthusiasts to come out and enjoy the view! Our hike at the end of March provided some spectacular photo ops. For those unfamiliar with Ellenwood’s various trails, download and print a trail map from our website or use Snap Chat on your cell phone to help navigate while you walk. Be safe, walk with others and have fun!

The Friends of Ellenwood Park would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you who are celebrating Easter this weekend a very happy time together with your family.
All our friends are invited to join us for a hike under the blue moon on Saturday night. It’s a magical few hours of easy communion with Nature (and other like-minded folks) who enjoy the quiet of the woods and the beauty of the night sky. Come along and bring the kids. We’ll meet you at the entrance gate at 8:00 pm. Bring your night ears and eyes – and a flashlight.
The Friends of Ellenwood Park will be hiking under the full moon again on Saturday, March 31st. We’ll be meeting everyone in the parking lot off of Mood Road at 8:00 pm. Dress for the weather, bring a flashlight and be sure to bring the kids! All our events are weather dependent so check back here before heading out.
Where did the month go, eh? Time sure flies when you’re not cross-country skiing – or snow shoeing for that matter. The ski cabin will be closed for loans this weekend, obviously, but this is a great time to remind you about our hike under the full moon at Ellenwood next Friday night, March 31st! We’ll meet everyone at 8:00 pm in the parking lot off of Mood Road. Bring a flashlight and dress for the weather. We’re hoping for clear skies, but you never can tell! So check here for updates before heading out to the Park.
Strong winds and a 60% chance of rain have left us with pretty unappealing hiking conditions – no chance of seeing the moon, but a good chance of getting wet. We’ll cancel our hike for tonight, but we’ll be trying again at the end of this month on Saturday, the 31st. Save the date and we will hope to see you all there!
The Friends of Ellenwood Park will be hiking under the full moon again on Friday, March 2nd. We’ll be meeting everyone in the parking lot off of Mood Road at 7:00 pm. Dress for the weather, bring a flashlight and be sure to bring the kids! All our events are weather dependent so check back here before heading out.
Regretfully, Mother Nature has decided to deliver some gnarly weather overnight into tomorrow and our ski waxing service will have to be cancelled in the interest of safety. Our ‘professional’ waxer was scheduled to drive all the way in from Wolfville and his safety is our #1 priority, obviously. Apologies to one and all. The cabin will be open for loans IF Mood Road is plowed. If the rain arrives as predicted, the cabin may be closed on Monday, time will tell.
