This weekend’s guests took advantage of our Lean-to Lunch Excursion. They set out to snowshoe the Peavine Swamp trail in the Cranberry Lake Wild Forest, then met us at a traditional Adirondack lean-to on the bank of the Oswegatchie river. There we prepared a warming fire and handed out cups of hot chocolate. Piping hot chili was dished out from the dutch oven by the fire and paired with a cornmeal muffin. And don’t forget the cookies!
The Peavine Swamp trail is great people of all types of athletic ability; three loops off the main trail allow you to tailor your outing to just your level and/or the time you want to spend on the trail. The added bonus in the winter is the option to snowshoe or ski back on the frozen river, providing a completely different view of the winter wonderland.
