Recreational Programming

Hartley Nature Center offers recreational programming for adults throughout the year. These programs can range from introductory lessons for recreational activities (ski lessons, bike lessons), to small weekly social events (group bike rides, group ski events), and large seasonal community events (Candlelight Ski, Global Fat Bike Day, Trails Fest). Below you will find descriptions of our recreational programming for the current season. We will update this page as new events or programs are added, or when a new seasons begins.

Fall Recreation Programming (Sept. 2023-Nov. 2023)

The 2023 Fall recreation season is here! We think fall is pretty special around here, and it’s such an awesome time of year to get out on the trails. This fall continues our weekly Thursday night group ride, and we are in the middle of planning a few one off events too. Keep your eyes on the website, and social media for the most up to date information on events.

Weekly Group Bike Ride – Thursdays through 10/26

Beginning on Thursday, Sept 14th HNC’s weekly ride returns to Hartley. Join us each week at 6pm for a social bike ride on the Hartley (and nearby) trails. Ride length will vary each week, but the pace will generally be relaxed as this is a social ride. All skill levels welcome, and new riders are encouraged to join.


Much more to come! Stay tuned on our webpage and social media for more information. We have a lot of fun planned for this summer.
