Snowshoes and Nordic Skiing

Winter Snowshoeing and Skiing

All trails are open free of charge for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. There is no entrance fee to the park. The Center is managed as a back-country area, meaning that trails are not groomed and breaking trail may be a necessity at times.  We encourage trail users to maintain separate tracks for snowshoeing and skiing whenever possible.

Snow conditions will be updated on a regular basis on this website’s side bar and on the outgoing message on the Center’s phone at (518) 658-2055.  Dyken Pond Center is located at an elevation of 1600 – 1800 feet. The snow pack can be much heavier here than at lower lying elevations.  Check conditions frequently.

Snowshoes are available for rent with advance notice. Rates are $5 for half day per person

$10 full day per person

Guided group rates: $4 per person for a 2 hour program.
