Maple Sugar Tours at HHNM
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. Opening day features added attractions, like crafts, games, campfire stories, 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.
