Dog Sledding

Opening day for dog sled ride reservations is Saturday December 11th. We are open by reservation within the 11:00 am to 3:00 pm hours, Saturdays and Sundays through March 6th with booking via the Reservation Calendar below.

We are maintaining NYS Covid-19 guidelines. Everyone must maintain 6 feet distance indoors with mask, and wear mask while outside. Due to Covid-19 regulations, bring your own helmet this season if you wish to wear one. Also, we cannot accommodate a bathroom for our guests, there is a Stewarts about 1 mile from us.

Come enjoy our new property with 102 acres of woods and fields. It is a very private, remote property with stunning views of Sharon Springs and the surrounding hills.

In our kennel of 16 dogs, we have 12 working, non-retired dogs this season. We also have 4 retired dogs needing lots of TLC too! We do have 5 puppies born this fall too, who will help in the next few years with the dogs who will retire!

What To Know Before You Go

Please keep your own dogs at home or secure in your car. Sled dogs can become very excited and anxious with personal dogs around them when they are working.

Dress for the weather! If we do not believe you are adequately dressed for your excursion, we will not take you for the ride and will not refund. Please bring a camera, you will definitely want to take pictures!

Trail conditions are highly variable and will affect the type of sled/cart and length of ride. Very warm or icy conditions may make it unsafe to ride the trail.
