Winter entices with plenty of groomed trails and easily rented cross country ski equipment, summer is excellent with ice cream and tons of great walking trails, Win-Win!

“Great nighttime skiing!”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

This is a bargain for outdoors family recreation. We particularily enjoy the lantern loop which features lighted night time skiing once a week. Lots of fun and no lift lines.

“A great destination any time of year.”
Reviewed 15 June 2011

I first visited Great Brook in winter when I was learning to x country ski. Nice variety of trails, some even available by lantern light for evening skiing. Rentals are reasonable and so is the hot cocoa. But in summer there is also a wonderful walking trail system. Just print your trail map from their website since they're usually out. Dogs on leash are welcome. There's a working dairy farm with ice cream and a beautiful picnic area. One of our favorite local destinations.

“Great trails, rustic old-fashioned but friendly”
Reviewed 10 January 2010

The facilities are rustic but effective, the staff is friendly, the selection of skis and equipment to rent is excellent but snacks and warming room are very basic indeed (a lightly converted barn, with wood stove and picnic tables). The ski trails are beautiful and excellently maintained for both skate skiing and ski-touring. Most are fairly easy: the few harder trails are clearly marked. There are plenty of trails with a variety of landscapes. The night skiing is great- very romantic, on a very well laid out trail. An excellent date option, or go alone or with friends. I have gone many times, and really enjoyed it.
