You are greeted with smiles and then the story telling begins. Trailhead Ed is a local historian, he shares his 25 years of experience and local lore and history on route to the designated trailhead for the day. At the trail head we fit clients to snowshoes and do a short instructional which continues along the trail. We cover techniques and proper usage on variable terrain. The tour is customized to ensure the best experience.

The areas we visit are away from the crowds and right into nature where the likelihood of seeing wildlife is high. The flora and fauna of each area we visit is explained as we come upon it.
