If you’re looking for an opportunity to be surrounded by the beauty of nature, and are not up to a strenuous hike, Wiessner Woods is your place. There always seem to surprises for the photographer in the group, too.

We wandered around the the woods in the snow. Lots of snacks for dogs along the trails. Super easy hiking. Saw a small deer and a huge white rabbit, possibly bear tracks too. Very nice, for winter hiking.

Not a large area but great network of trails. I use it for walks with my dog Alfred. Most routes are short enough for small children. Bonus is the gnome home and free dog treats by the maple sugaring cabin. Generally uncrowded.

There were nice trails through 79 acres of dense woods - easy trails for kids. Don't forget bug spray if you visit in the warmer months. Not breath-taking, but pleasant stroll through nature.
