Snowshoeing at Stone Bridge

In the winter season, see a sparkling Stone Bridge and frozen ice flows along Trout Brook.  The rest of the caves are inaccessible this time of year because of the ice and we remove bridges that would get washed out in the spring floods.  The 14.5 miles of additional trails provide much more to explore! Snowshoe to the old Sink Hole, the Beaver Stump Loop or the Bobcat Ledges to see interesting geology and maybe some animal tracks along the way.
