Snow Shoeing

For those who prefer a similar feel to a more traditional hike, snow shoeing is available on our trails after snowfall.

Snowshoeing is a wonderful way to explore winter landscapes while navigating through deep snow. Using specialized footwear that distributes weight and prevents sinking, snowshoeing allows adventurers to trek across snowy terrains that might otherwise be inaccessible. It’s a serene and engaging activity that connects you with nature, providing a peaceful escape and a chance to admire the quiet beauty of winter scenery. Whether for leisurely strolls or more challenging expeditions, snowshoeing offers an opportunity to embrace the winter wonderland in a unique and immersive way.

Pineland offers various trails and rentals!

Fat Biking

For our bike enthusiasts, snow doesn’t have to ruin the fun! Fat biking is the perfect way to enjoy pedaling with snow on the ground just as much as without it.

Fat bikes are specifically designed to navigate through challenging terrains with their oversized tires. These bikes, with their wider tires and lower tire pressure, provide increased traction and stability, allowing riders to explore areas that might be difficult or impossible to access with traditional bikes.

Bring your own fat bike, or rent one of ours! We have just 6 available to rent, so call ahead to ensure a bike is available: 207.688.6599

Our fat bikes are only allowed on the snow shoe trails.

The hill is open all winter dawn to dusk, subject to weather and safety conditions.

Sledding is a simple yet delightful way to embrace the winter season, creating cherished memories of fun-filled days spent outdoors with family and friends. We hope to help you create fun and loving memories!

Disc Golf

Disc golf is a popular sport played in the warmer months, but we keep our Minuteman course open year-round for those who want to play in any weather.

Winter disc golf is a thrilling twist on the classic game, set against a serene backdrop of snow-covered landscapes. Players navigate through icy fairways, aiming their discs through the cold, dense air toward baskets peeking out from the snowy terrain. The challenge of slippery footing and altered disc flight paths adds a new layer of strategy, all against the tranquil beauty of a winter wonderland.

The Minuteman is open daily from dawn until dusk, with rentals available at the Outdoor Center.

Embrace the winter wonderland at Pineland Farms, where a symphony of snow-covered activities awaits. Whether carving through pristine trails on skis, forging paths in snowshoes, or gliding across icy surfaces, each experience paints a vibrant picture against the serene backdrop of the season. From the exhilaration of fat biking to the timeless joy of sledding and the strategic challenge of winter disc golf, every adventure is an invitation to cherish the magic of winter.
