Age Level: 12 and up
Fitness Level: Moderate - you have previous hiking experience in warmer weather
Skill Level: All
Winter is a beautiful time to enjoy a walk in the woods and you don’t need to be an expert to don a pair of snowshoes or micro spikes to make the experience an enjoyable one. We’ll help you gear up and take your first steps in our equipment making it possible to walk on snow and ice.
Once we get going, we’ll explore the beauty of the winter forest and connect to the healing powers of nature. We’ll discover the abundance of life in the forest. With tree and bird identification as well as wildlife tracking, we can begin to know our natural world more intimately.
On this outing, you'll enjoy some of the most secluded, beautiful trails on a hike with us in the valleys below Mount Toby and Bull Hill in Sunderland.
We will embark from the Reservoir Road parking lot, crossing multiple streams on a 1.5-mile loop below gorgeous rock faces known as the Sunbowl, famous for its bright, warm light in the late afternoon. The hike will culminate with a stretch along cliffs with stunning views of Mount Sugarloaf and Sunderland.
