We love Great Glen Trails! XC Skiing in winter (or snow shoeing). Running, hiking, mountain biking in the rest of the seasons. Friendly, wonderful atmosphere, inside and out. Lots of fun events to partake in, but you can also just enjoy the quiet by yourself. Great for families. Great to just show up solo and enjoy a good workout and camaraderie. Trails are always maintained to perfection. The shops sell the BEST gear and clothing! Cafe is great too. Employees are always there to be helpful! Views of Mt. Washington are unsurpassed from the wonderful, big yet cozy lodge. Worth a visit (and again and again)!!!! And, as a bonus, you can even take a hot shower!

I have been to Great Glen Trails many times, and I have always loved Cross-country skiing there because their trails are well-groomed and maintained, they usually have great snow cover, and they are in a beautiful setting. In addition, what they have over other x-country ski areas is their incredibly helpful and knowledgable staff. They are all cross-country skiers who love the sport and love to help you enjoy the sport. They have a great shop there as well.

The hill wasn't even a slope - maybe incline is even too generous a word. We couldn't get even halfway down it without a push. Waste of $15.

We tried going tubing, it was very cold and had snowed a few inches the night before. We tried 15 times or so to head down the hill but it was zero fun. We had to push ourselves all the way down the hill and back up as well. Our arms were incredibly sore the next day from the workout. It was a heck of a work out and we laughed at ourselves for our ridiculous efforts. An hour later we gave up and went back to the lodge, they tried to entice us to spend another 70 bucks to try snow shoeing instead but after wasting 30 on trying to sled we decided to bail. The restaurant was also closed well we were there and the info on the web in accurate they opened at 9:00 instead of the web's stated 8:30.

We took the last Moose Tour of the season. Laurie Blake was our tour guide. She loves Moosing and shared her knowledge and love of Moose. She found three for us and it was so much fun.
