Let’s go snowshoeing! You don’t need any prior experience to join us on this wonderful winter trip. We are going to the Catskill Mountains to play in the winter wonderland and try snowshoeing. We’ll provide the snowshoes and teach you the basics. Don’t worry, if you can hike, you can snowshoe. It’s day of fun in the snow you are not going to want to miss!

Note, the exact location of the hike may vary, depending on the best snow conditions. If weather does not cooperate and there is no snow, it will be a regular winter hike!
