You can begin your visit at the Nature Center and walk on the Maple History Trail hiking through the recently expanded sugarbush. You will learn how to identify a sugar maple tree, find out how tall they grow and find out how big and old they need to be in order to tap them. You will also be able to try your hand at using some of the metal tools, buckets and spiles used when tapping trees.
You will be able to taste the delicious 19th-century dishes made with the thick maple syrup of our New York forests and end the day enjoying refreshments at the historic Hosmer’s Inn Tavern.
There will also be maple cotton candy and maple popcorn available for purchase at an additional cost.
