Go Snowshoeing at Wachusett Meadow

Snowshoers at Mass Audubon Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary

We have the cure for cabin fever—snowshoeing at Wachusett Meadow! Bring your own or rent a pair from us. Snowshoeing is a great winter activity that provides good exercise and a chance to explore the great outdoors during a beautiful season.

We make it easy and inexpensive, and we rent snowshoes in all sizes from child to adult. Snowshoes can be used anytime there is 6 inches or more of snow on the ground.

Come explore over 12 miles of sanctuary trails on snowshoes and enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of the winter woods!
