Winter Trails Fun

Posted on Feb 6, 2015

This weekend is going to be a B-E-A-Utiful one for all that enjoy getting outdoors during this time of year in Chautauqua County! With the latest storms passing through from the Midwest this week, there is ample snow for everyone to play in. While you are out this weekend, enjoying the deep snow throughout the county, take a moment to check out these little blue Snowy Owl signs scattered across the snowmobile trails. Many of these signs are placed at trail junctions, road crossings and trail heads, and each tell a stellar story about the natural history or a historical happening at each location. While snowmobilers can access each of the 25 stops, those skiing, snowshoeing or hiking can access a number of them as well. Several signs are placed on the Chautauqua Rails to Trails as well as within the state lands throughout the area. So whatever mode of winter transportation you use, be safe, have fun and happy trails!
