Snowshoeing at Kettletown State Park

Let's go snowshoeing!

I haven't done much snowshoeing, but I know it's a lot of fun to get out there and enjoy the snow while getting in a great workout.

Some people may have their own or they can be rented at places like REI or EMS for approx: $ 20.00 per day

After the event, we could either grab a bite to eat locally or if it's not too cold out we can eat at the park. (they have picnic tables, large rocks by the waterside)

If you haven't been to Kettletown State Park, check out their website. It's a beautiful park for hiking, snowshoeing, picnicking and camping.

Please don't wish for snow anymore, I think we have plenty for snowshoeing

    What a beautiful day. Such an amazing feeling to snowshoe through untouched snow, well except for all of the animal tracks we saw. A very serene and peaceful experience. Thank you guys for joining me today! And for going the distance! My legs are sore already so I know we got in a good workout! :)

    I hope everyone is safe and warm after the storm. My street still hasn't been plowed and I'm still digging out of my driveway. Is everyone else pretty much in this same situation? Let me know. I'll reschedule for next Saturday if we're all stuck inside!

      Our parking lot hasn't been shoveled yet either and it's nearly impossible to shovel ourselves around the cars :(

    are dogs allowed on the hike?

    February 4, 2013

    • Denise

      Hi Becky - yes, leashed dogs are allowed at this park. I'd be happy to have a dog on the trail, I love animals!

    Hi Michelle,
    Absolutely! I've only gone a few times myself. You pick it up really quick. Now all we need is some snow!
