Every Saturday (during business hours), you may bring your snowshoes out to Maple Moon and enjoy the rustic trail (weather dependent). Don't have snowshoes? Rent them at Bear Cub Outfitters in Petoskey!
To start off the snowshoe excursion at Maple Moon; visitors may start off with 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. 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 outing; or perhaps just a playful trek in the snow. The trail winds up in front of an outside fire where you may enjoy a second glass of wine.
We can’t think of a better way to spend a snowy afternoon in Northern Michigan’s wonderful out of doors.
