SPECIAL EVENT: Hike and Maple Sugaring Experience

ABOUT THE EVENT:
We are excited to announce a collaboration with Brooks Family Sugar House in Freedom, NH for this fun and tasty way to end a hike. Maple sugaring is a true New England experience and we have a fun and unique way to share it with your human and furry family. Join us for a hike and private maple sugaring experience, just a hike or just the maple sugaring experience. The choice is yours on how you want to spend your day with Golden Dog!

This experience is great for the human and canine “sniffers” since nothing smells better than maple syrup. Rain date is Sunday, March 24th.

To start our adventure, we will hike the 2-mile loop trail at White Lake State Park in Tamworth, NH. This is a unique place where dogs are only allowed in the off season. We expect it will be beautiful this time of year with birds starting to return and the snow melting. Snowshoes may be needed depending on the amount of snow in this area.

After the hike, join us at Brooks Family Sugar House to learn about the maple sugaring process and indulge in some sensory exploration. Carrying on a family tradition that began back in the 1930’s, the Brooks Family harvests maple sap throughout the Town of Freedom, NH. At the sugar shack, we will stop for a private presentation and private tasting of maple syrup on ice cream, pancakes, donuts, cookies, and other goodies. There will even be treats for the dogs to taste with maple syrup. Items will also be available for purchase.

IS THIS EVENT GOOD FOR REACTIVE DOGS?
Reactive Dog Level 2-3. See our Comfort Chart for explanation. The trail is wide and flat with plenty of room to step to the side if another person approaches (depending on snow conditions). If the weather is nice, it could be a busy trail. There will also be room to spread out at the Sugar House. If needed, we will use a mobile conference line so everyone can hear the presentation. If you have concerns or questions about if this event is right for your dog, please email woof@goldendognh.com for assistance.

TRAIL RATING:
The White Lake State Park Loop Trail is rated as Level 1 Stroll. See an explanation of our Trail Rating System. The trail is flat and wide. We do expect the trail to be wet and muddy an perhaps with some residual ice.
