VISIT & explore

Walkin' in the Woods

Go walkin’ through a winter wonderland in a pair of snowshoes or explore our hilly terrain in cross-country skis! Bring your own or rent a pair of ours to explore the quiet stillness of nature at The Morton Arboretum.
 
From December through March, (and when there’s 4” of snow), visitors can bring their own snowshoes or cross-country skis or rent them to explore our 1,700 acres of winter wonderland and 3.5 miles of groomed trails.
 
Kids' and adults' cross-country skis and snowshoes are available for rent at the Visitor Center Area, on a first-come, first-served basis when there are four or more inches of snow on the ground.
 
Saturday-Sunday: 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Monday-Friday: 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
