Two Hour Dogsledding Experiences at Little River State Park
Check out these videos and see for yourself why October Siberians Sled Dog Adventures offers an experience that is unlike anything else you will experience in Vermont.
Many people have visited Vermont State Parks in the summer, but find they have a completely different feel to them in the winter. On this tour, located in the Mount Mansfield State Forest and along the Waterbury Reservoir, you will travel through the State Park campground and dogsled along ancient roads through a former homestead community last occupied 100 years ago. You'll drive past many rock walls, old foundations, cemeteries, orchards and beautiful vistas.The Map below highlight the extensive trail net work available for your tour.
The trip is a 4-6 mile (1 hour, 30 minutes to 1 our 45 minutes on the sled) journey over typical Vermont hill terrain. You'll experience mild to steep climbs and the thrill of the downhill, but rest assured, the Musher maintains full control of the pace of the team and the speed of the sled through this stunning landscape.
A portion of the tour is spent within the campground loop system so you can take turns photographing each other driving the team, and also get the front photo of the dogs (not just the sled view). The campground loops also show how a well trained team and leaders can perform.
