Don't let a few inches of snow keep you from getting outdoors! There's no better way to explore the woods in winter than by snowshoe.

Just about all of our wildlife sanctuaries welcome snowshoeing from December-March as long as there is at least 6 inches of snow on the ground . You can go it alone, or join a guided snowshoe walk!

NOTE: Snowshoeing is not permitted at Endicott, Joppa Flats, Nahant Thicket, Sampsons Island, or Sesachacha Heathlands.
