Winter activities in Maine include some high-adrenaline fun like snowboarding down a huge mountain or taking a ride on a snowmobile for hundreds of miles over a weekend. Even tubing down a giant hill is a massive thrill. But for many, it’s the peaceful quietness and beauty of winter that’s the real highlight.

The stunning Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine has been offering Full-Moon snowshoe hikes and the last one of this season is only a month away.

This guided tour will take you from the Pineland Farms Outdoor Center down Muskrat Hollow to the River Valley Cabin. Once you reach your destination you’re not just turning back. Once you arrive at the destination you will warm up around a cozy fire pit and take in the full moon and bright stars. It's the perfect outing for solo fun, as a date, with friends, or bring the whole family.

No worries if snowshoeing is a foreign concept for you. The folks at Pineland Farms will teach you everything you need to know about how to properly hike in snowshoes, read their trail maps, proper attire, and more. And if you don’t have your own snowshoes, no problem. They’ve got you covered. Just bring your winter boots, hat, gloves, and plenty of layers.
