ENJOY THE MAGIC OF WINTER AT THE CASTLE
We have many fun and active year-round opportunities to enjoy the Castle in the Clouds.
Activities include cross-country skiing, winter hiking/snowshoeing, snowmobiling, carriage rides, scheduled winter events and dining at the Carriage House Restaurant.
HIKING, SKIING and SNOWSHOEING
Nordic skiing and snowshoeing are popular winter activities. We have groomed skiing and hiking trails for you to adventure out on!
Hiker parking is located at the top of Ossipee Park Road, across from the entrance to the bottling plant. If you’re planning on staying later in the afternoon, be sure to park outside the gate as we will close and lock that gate after restaurant hours.
JOIN US BY SNOWMOBILE
Many snowmobile trails traverse the Castle in the Clouds property. Enjoy spectacular riding and then join us for lunch. The Carriage House Restaurant is open for lunch on the weekends in the winter from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm.
Snowmobiles will have access to the restaurant via our front gate on Route 171. The Moultonborough Snowmobile Club and the Lakes Region Conservation Trust have been working together to provide some of the best snowmobiling in the state.
We have a plethora of scheduled winter activities on the property, such as a full moon hikes, sleigh rides, and our Cardboard Box Sled Derby. Visit our program calendar to learn if there’s something in the area during your visit!
“Opening the snowmobile trail to the Carriage House from Corridor 15 in Moultonborough will allow riders from all over the state
to enjoy a great lunch while surrounded by stunning views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the surrounding mountains.”
– JOHN HARRINGTON, president of the Moultonborough Snowmobile Club.
