Family X-Country Skiing at Monson Center, Hollis/Milford NH

Sunday, March 12, 2017 12:00 AM

Come enjoy an afternoon ski trip in historic Monson Center just a little over an hour from Boston. Join AMC families and kids as we explore Old Monson Village, one of NH's first inland towns from 1737-1770 that covered over 17,000 acres with ruins that have remained for the most part undisturbed for over 200 years. The trails are easy with nice scenery and historic plaques describing the history of the old settlement. We'll ski between 2 and 3 miles on easy trails. The trails are excellent to hike as well if the skiing is not good.
