Grab your snow shoes, hiking boots or cross country skiis and get the family outside between Christmas and New Years to seek out our elusive herd of wooden reindeer sculptures found throughout the Grass Rides. See how many you can find and leave a bell around each one's neck. Bells can be found at the bulletin board. This Self-guided program takes place on the Appleton Grass Rides entrance off of Highland St. Trustees members park free. Nonmember's are $5. Dogs are welcome in the grass rides!
Snowshoe or Hike Treks with our knowledgeable guides through this winter wonderland! Our monthly series will take you to a variety of habitats, some you'll know, others will surprise you, and enjoy extraordinary views from the highest point in Essex County.
Celebrate Valentines Day the natural way... outdoors! Escape the hearts and join us for an afternoon of skiing or snowshoeing (or hiking if no snow) through Ravenswood's carriage paths of rolling hills and dales. Warm up afterwards around the woodstove with a tasting of Appleton Farms cheeses, local chocolate, and wine. Pre-registration required. Bring your own skis or snowshoes (or rent snowshoes from us).
Kick off the new year with Winter Happenings at the Cape Ann Discovery Center at Ravenswood Park--Nordic skiing, snowshoe rentals, outdoor children's activities. Warm up afterwards with hot cocoa by the woodstove. [Fee for snowshoe rentals--Members $10, Nonmembers $20.]
Night time is the right time to don your night/head lights and come along for this after-hours adventure when the property is closed to the public. We'll night hike up to Holt Hill, learning about nocturnal animals, tracking signs, and winter living skills. We'll peak out on top of Holt Hill for some light infused winter fun. Bring a sled and snowshoes if the conditions are right!
