Snowshoeing/Cross Country


You can just step out the back door and head up the trail to the left of the parking area.  From there, go across the field to the top corner and head into the woods or go out into the farm fields.  Just beware of any electric fences, but they are not dangerous and easy to see.  One was just on the other side of the stone wall, leaving our property.

NOTE:  Romantic Retreat snowshoes are located in bin inside shed next to cabin.

Little loft snowshoes are in bin inside basement.
