For those in the North how about Snowshoeing at Maudsley State Park?

Need a Minimum of 3 people for this event to happen!

 

Let's enjoy this new snow...Let's go Snowshoeing!!!

We will start a little later, giving you time to dig out!! Dogs are welcome!!

The former Moseley family estate on the Merrimack River, this park features 19th century gardens and plantings, rolling meadows, towering pines, and one of the largest naturally-occurring stands of mountain laurel in Massachusetts. Most breathtaking are the ornamental trees and masses of azaleas and rhododendrons that bloom in May and June. An exquisite place for walking, biking, horseback riding and informal picnics. Special Use Permits may be obtained for wedding ceremonies and similar programs.

Cultural events are a regular feature during the summer. During the winter a portion of the park is off limits due to roosting bald eagles, but the remainder provides excellent cross country skiing and winter walks.

We will Snowshoe for a few hours, not all of the trails are open so we shall play it be ear, while we are there.. More then likely we will follow the trails that are already broken.

The Parking Fee at Maudslay State Park is $2.00. Annual Passes are available for purchase.

Afterwards if everyone wants to, let's go over to Stripers for a bite to eat!!!
