Snowshoe Up Yonda Farm

Explore our 3+ miles of easy-moderate groomed trails by snowshoe, take in the sights and sounds, and enjoy the winter wonderland! As long as we’ve got snow on our trails, we’ll be snowshoeing at Up Yonda Farm.

If you’re looking to try snowshoeing for the first time or want to learn about winter in the Adirondacks, reserve a spot on a Naturalist-led hike, happening weekends in January and February. Snowshoe rentals in child and adult sizes are available for on-site use, no reservations needed.

On a Naturalist-led hike we’ll cover the basics of snowshoeing while you learn about animal tracking, winter ecology, and the history of Up Yonda Farm. During the program, we’ll traverse about a mile over the course of an hour, and will include a stop at our scenic vista point overlooking Lake George. Your program will finish near the Farmhouse, where a campfire and hot chocolate will be available!

Reservations are recommended via nonrefundable reservation deposit of $1/person. Please see the Rates tab for more information. Walk-ins will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

This program is suitable for participants who are able to walk a mile of gradual uphill terrain, typically ages 5 and up.
