Introduction to Snowshoeing

Program hosted at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site

Fort Hunter, NY – Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site will hold an introduction to snowshoeing event at the Erie Canal site on Saturday, February 17th starting at 10 a.m.  This program will offer instruction on proper fit and use of snowshoes that can be used to enjoy walks or hikes in the winter.  After instruction, there will be a guided one-mile loop walk along the historic towpaths to the overlook of the Schoharie Creek Aqueduct.

This is a free in person event and the site has a limited number of snowshoes available, please call to reserve if you need to borrow them.  If you have your own, bring them along for the fun.

Enjoy this program with us and earn a mile toward the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor’s February 15 Challenge. Participants in that challenge pledge to complete 15 miles by walking, running, hiking, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing during the month of February to earn a 15-Miler badge. Participants can choose to log miles at national, state, and local parks, on the Canalway Trail, or even in their own neighborhoods. Any location within the boundaries of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor counts. To find out more visit eriecanalway.org.
