Don snowshoes – bring your own or rent from the nearby Woodstock Inn & Resort Nordic Center – and venture through the picturesque snow-covered farm fields and along the Ottauquechee River.
Bring your sled to speed down the small hill next to the orchard. Gather round the fire pit and warm up with hot cider and s’mores. Families can enjoy a poetic stroll along the Story Walk pasture fence featuring “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost.
