Cross-country Ski and Snowshoe at Steepletop, Monterey, 02/11/2017

Join us for some winter fun at Steepletop. 


Saturday, February 11, 9:00am – 12:00pm

Pace: Easy

Terrain: Moderate

Description: 1,300 acres, miles of woods roads, beautiful wetlands and dark hemlock stands.  Bring your cross country skis and follow Doug Bruce along woods roads lined with old stone walls and large oak trees.  Terrain is mostly level, moderate skiing-ability is expected.  Bring your own equipment.  Contact tames@bnrc.org with any questions.

If you bring your snowshoes, Mike Leavitt will lead a 2-mile hike, possibly with some off-trail walking to look for animal tracks along the way.  Contact mleavitt@bnrc.org with any questions.

If there is not enough snow, we will go on a hike instead!  Bring appropriate footwear and traction.  Everyone should bring plenty of layers, a snack and water.

Directions:  From Great Barrington, take Route 23 east towards Butternut.  Take a right onto Route 57/Route 183 towards New Marlborough.  Just before the Old Inn on the Green, take a left onto New Marlborough-Monterey Road.  Travel approximately 6 miles, take a right at the BNRC sign and park by the gate.  Carpooling is appreciated as parking is limited.
