Snowshoeing and Cross-country Skiing

Don’t let snow keep you off New York State’s thousands of trails this winter – grab a pair of cross-country skis or snowshoes and enjoy your favorite trails all winter long! The solitude and all engulfing silence of the wilderness in winter await. Many trails are actually easier to traverse in winter as the rocks, roots, and mud are covered over with nothing but smooth, deep snow. You can go to areas otherwise not accessible in summer due to wet conditions and take short cuts across frozen lakes. You may be surprised that a day of exercise and exploring nature in winter could be so much fun! (NYS DEC)
