11:00am to 3:00pm
All ages
Members (aged 6 and up): $8; nonmembers (6 and up): $10; ages 5 and under: FREE (but ticket required)

Learn how to tap a tree, collect sap, and discover the history of harvesting maple syrup. See if you can tell the difference between pure maple syrup and the artificially flavored variety. 

Two types of Maple Sugar Tours are offered: 

  • Sugarbush Tours (11am, 1pm, and 2pm): A 1-mile moderate hike through field and forest to the sugar shack (weather dependent)
  • Maple Lane Tours (12pm and 3pm): Suitable for little legs, a short walk to the sugar maple stand

Tour size is limited to 20 participants. Mask wearing and social distancing requirements are in place.

In 2021, maple syrup can be pre-ordered online and picked up on the day of your scheduled tour. In-person purchases will not be available. 

Dress for the weather (and possible mud), and leave your stroller at home.
