By Chris Jones

As the nights grow longer and colder, it’s becoming harder to find outdoor activities to do, but that didn’t stop throngs of people from attending the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Schmeeckle Reserve for the annual Candlelight Hike Festival.

Torches and jack-o-lanterns outlined half-mile and mile-long paths that weaved throughout the reserve and ended at the visitor’s center, where hot cocoa and snacks were served. Hands-on activities were set up at stations at the end of the trails.​
