Snowshoes provide by Bear Cub Outfitters of Petoskey
A guided tour of the 80 acre forest will be held on February 11th, the anniversary of the launch of both the syrup business (2012) and wine business (2015) Snowshoes are provided by Bear Cub Outfitters and available on-site. Marketed as “fresh air, exercise and wine tasting” we expect this trend will continue in the following years.
To start off the snowshoe excursion with Maple Moon; visitors are handed a glass of wine which they can enjoy while admiring the vintages and indoor displays. It is a great chance to warm up your soul and taste one of many exceptional wines. After polishing off the first glass it is time to suit up and strap on the snowshoes. For beginner snowshoe adventurists, the staff members on hand are ready to help you strap them on and are knowledgeable in explaining the sport. From there, you begin your trek by winding through the Cedar forest where you find yourself captivated by the stillness of winter. Along the route, you happen upon the humble beginning of the Minnehaha Creek, a spring fed creek who’s waters wind their way through the joy valley. Next, you depart the cover and protection of the cozy cedar forest and walk out into the majestic maples and the rolling snow covered hills. The landscape and scenery out on the tour are truly beautiful and set the stage for a romantic tour; or perhaps just a playful trek in the snow. The tour winds up in front of an outside roaring fire with yet another glass of wine and a bowl of fresh locally made chili. This amazing experience comes at the cost of just $30 and includes the use of snowshoes, the guided trek, tastings, a bowl of chili and a souvenir glass to take home. We can’t think of a better way to spend a snowy afternoon in Northern Michigan’s wonderful out of doors.
