Adventurer Snowshoe Route

The Adventurer Snowshoe Route is great for the first time snowshoer and families looking for a fun adventure. The route is conveniently located right outside the cabins and is a mix of wooded terrain and open spaces. Along the trail you will discover geologic formations, historic architecture and scenic views.  Our team packs this route after every fresh snow. Check our Winter Trail Condition page for updates.

Explorer Snowshoe Route

The Explorer Snowshoe Route explores the Garden Brook watershed and offers a more remote experience away from the Lodge. Along the route snowshoers will discover views of the Brockway Mountain ridge line, a cedar forest and some large white pines along the valley floor. There are many bridges that add an adventuresome element to this hike. We only pack this trail once in a while to let users have a fresh snow experience after a winter storm.

Trekker Snowshoe Route

The Trekker Snowshoe Route takes off from the Adventurer Snowshoe Route, providing you the opportunity to walk below cliff faces and along the top of ridge lines. This route offers snowshoers a wilderness feel with views of Lake Manganese, East Bluff, and the Keweenaw Ridge. There is a chance you could see wildlife or their tracks. As with the Explorer Snowshoe Route, we only pack this trail once in a while to let users have a fresh snow experience after a winter storm.
