Ikenick Sno-Park is a peaceful place to get away during the winter months to enjoy nature, solitude and a little exercise The trail system takes you in a few different directions through old- and new-growth trees. Heading north you can find views of Three Fingered Jack. The trail system heading north is not well marked, so a map and GPS is strongly encouraged. You will wander over a stream and can enjoy a snack in a snowy meadow. The south trail is well marked and offers views of the Three Sisters, Three Fingered Jack and Mount Washington. The sno-park is at a lower elevation, so a low snowpack year may turn your snowshoeing adventure into an easy hiking adventure. The trails are fun and beautiful nonetheless.
Winter backcountry adventures can be dangerous outdoor activities that pose significant risks as conditions affecting safety (i.e. weather, snowpack stability, avalanche hazard) are constantly changing. Prior to engaging in these activities each individual should get the proper training to make safe decisions and be equipped to use avalanche safety resources and tools.
