There are plenty of other recreational activities one can enjoy when the trails are iced over and a new form of recreation is needed! Keep in tip top shape during the colder months and consider these recreational options:
Cross-Country Skiing and Snowshoeing at Lapham Peak: Visited by families and couples who enjoy 17.2 miles of skiing trails, including the popular 2.5-mile lit ski trail that loops through the rustic surroundings.
