Experience the age-old tradition of maple sugaring. The warm days of late winter awaken the flow of sap in the maples resulting in sweet-smelling, billowing clouds of steam rising from the sugarhouse. On a naturalist-guided walk, learn how to identify a sugar maple, observe tapping and sap collection methods, watch the sap being boiled down in the sugarhouse, and get a sweet taste of the final product.

Bottles of our own freshly made maple syrup will be available for purchase. Tours last about an hour and run in all weather.
