"Dog Day" Mondays!
On "Dog Day Mondays" dogs are allowed on all trails with a leash. If you are all alone on a trail and your dog is kept within sight, they may be taken off the leash. When returning to the parking lot area or if you meet another person on the trail, please re-leash your dog out of courtesy to others. Also please remove any dog "surprises" off the groomed portion of the trail.
Skiing On Palmer Piece Trail
The farm is own and operated by Tim & Loraine Hescock, with lots of help from the greater Hescock family. In addition to maple sugaring and Christmas tree growing, opening the farm up for skiing and snowshoeing is a way to diversifiy and further utilize the farm during the off season.
We need your feedback! We want this to be a success, so we really need your comments!
