10/17/2019 7:29:00 AM Into the woods for trick-or-treat: YMCA of the Northwoods to host 'Not So Scary' Halloween Trail
Trick-or-treat takes to the forest as the YMCA of the Northwoods will once again host the "Not so Scary" Halloween Trail on the Stoney Pines Trail behind the Y from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25.
The crushed-granite trail winds through the woods and community groups, businesses and volunteers decorate sites along the trail and hand out candy to trick-or-treaters, Y officials said in a press release.
After walking the trail, participants are encouraged to head inside the Y for refreshments and chili, the release states.
Primary parking for the event will be at the Rhinelander Ice Arena and a path from the arena leads to the entrance of the trail. Those with strollers or who require an even surface should use the sidewalk along Hwy. 17, the release states.
The event is free but donation of a non-perishable food item for the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry is encouraged. All participants are also asked to bring a flashlight and a Halloween treat bag.
For those interested in sponsoring a site, volunteering, contact Laurie Bielen, event coordinator, at 715-362-9622, ext. 114.
