Don’t Let Snow Slow Down Your Fun in the Sun

When the temperatures start to drop, many people shy away from outdoor activities. But just because there’s snow on the ground doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy everything that makes Montgomery County unique and beautiful. Just remember to dress accordingly.

Whatever your passion, there’s something for everyone to enjoy this time of year.

Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site in Fort Hunter, Canajoharie’s Wintergreen Park, the Thomas H. Burbine Memorial Forest in Charleston, and the Landis Arboretum are just a few of the many forest preserves and nature trails that dot Montgomery County’s landscape. Each trail offers cross-country skiers and snowshoers incredible natural vistas, and exciting opportunities for short, intermediate or full-day outings.

Located near the confluence of the Schoharie Creek and Mohawk River, visitors to Schoharie Crossing SHS will encounter the remains of the Schoharie Creek Aqueduct (pictured), which harkens to earlier times in our nation’s history. Further along the trail, sightseers can explore early sections of the world-famous Erie Canal.

Looking for something a little bit more fast paced? Snowmobilers can be found crisscrossing Montgomery County daily on the nearly 200 miles of groomed trails. Maintained by a network of local snowmobile clubs, Montgomery County’s trails offer fun rides, attractive scenery and welcoming stops along the way. Click on the map to plan your next ride and then visit the dining section of our “Things To Do” page, to find the perfect stop along your route.
