Today was the kind of day we hope for to help us get through these long western New York winters. It was absolutely glorious with bright sun, ice blue skies, no wind, and tons of snow of excellent consistency for sledding, snowshoeing, and snowman building! Sixty-five folks braved these conditions to visit our Lillibridge property for our Snowshoe Blitz. The talented staff from Paths, Peaks, and Paddles in Tonawanda provided equipment, instruction, and guided walks allowing our visitors to explore and enjoy the best we have to offer during the height of the winter season. The trails had thick fresh snow, the trees loaded with heavy white coats that brought the boughs low enough to brush their freshness against your cheek. Lots of happy people (and dogs) emerged from the forest all smiles and enthused about their new found winter sport!
Both properties are open dawn to dusk, year round and provide miles of trails to enjoy winter hiking, nature exploration, cross country skiing and of course, snowshoeing! We have several pair of snowshoes available for daily and weekend rental. On March 6, we offer a 2-hour snowshoe program. This is a small group experience using snowshoes to explore the trails of Lillibridge and enjoy the quiet and peace of the snow laden forest. Snowshoes provided. Experience limited to 6 participants. 10:30-12:30 PM General Public $10/PNC Members $5. Call the office at 716-933-0187 for details.
Get out and enjoy this wonderful winter!
