Editor's Pick: 

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. 

Offered February 24 (additional festivities offered) through March 18. On opening day, visitors can experience expanded maple festivities along with their tour, including crafts, games, Native American story-telling around a campfire and more. 

Two types of Maple Sugar Tours are offered: 

  • Sugarbush Tours (11am, 1pm, and 2pm): A one-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

Tours take about 1 hour. Tour size is limited, so visitors are urged to sign up for their walking tours as soon as they arrive. Maple products and hot chocolate are available for purchase. 

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