Snowshoeing at Pfeiffer Nature Center

Snowshoeing is a great winter-time hiking activity and a terrific cardio workout.  There are dozens of areas filled with trails to enjoy snowshoeing. 

Check out a couple of Enchanted Mountains more popular places to snowshoe:

Pfeiffer Nature Center

Pfeiffer Nature Center offers snowshoes for rent to those that want to walk the trails at Pfeiffer Nature Center.  Miles of trails surround the area just waiting to be explored.  The trails are well-groomed and kept clean all winter long. 

They do have a limited number of snowshoes to rent at any time. It’s $8 a pair for adults, $5 for 10yr and under and $5 for members. So if you come in on Friday before we close @ noon, then you get to rent them until we’re back Tuesday beginning @ 8am. Very good deal!

Allegany State Park

A new trail designed to be specific for snowshoeing, as it is not allowed on the Art Roscoe Trail System, was developed by The Park's Recreation Team and unveiled January 1, 2016.  The "Bear Paw Snowshoe Trail" 2.3 mile trail will take you around the Summit Area and Stone Tower.  Featured in the Map Download are interesting animals, plants, and trees that you will see along this trail.  The Park no longer rents snowshoes.
