WOODSTOCK NORDIC CENTER LEAVES BACKCOUNTRY TRAILS UNTOUCHED

by Craig Altschul

Looking for a bit of adventure? Then, look no further than Woodstock Inn and Resort Nordic Center. Trails on Mt. Tom in the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park will not be groomed this winter season. No fee will be charged for access and backcountry skiing and snowshoeing is on the agenda. Rental equipment can be rented, too. Those trails are accessed from parking lots noted on the trail map. Many of the trails were originally cut as carriage roads in the 1880s and offer some of the most picturesque trails found anywhere. There is a warming shelter on top of Mt. Tom. Meanwhile, the Nordic Center features 30km of mapped, groomed trails for either classic or skating technique cross-country skiing. Everything else you might be looking for once the outdoor adventure ends for the day is available at the famous inn.

    I wish more people would write blogs like this that are really fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the net, it is rare to read a blog like this instead.
