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. 

Rentals at PNC

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 they close @ noon, then you get to rent them until they’re back Tuesday beginning @ 8am. Very good deal!
