You are welcome to wear your snowshoes and bring your dogs (must be on a leash). Hot chocolate and refreshments will be served in the hut following the hike.

POSTPONED – Family Skate (Saturday)

  • While the ice depth is great, due to the strong winds and rain earlier this week, the surface of the ice is not conducive for skating. This event, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, February 22nd from 2-4pm at Murray’s Pond, is postponed and will be rescheduled when weather conditions permit. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
