Corridor 22 is a nice ride heading east into New Durham and eventually out towards Brookfield. Snow conditions are everything though.

Everyone would say take her up the Castle trail but that when the conditions are reasonably good are pretty busy, not best for a beginner! It's a great ride but you'll want to get used to riding and handling a sled before going out in an area that's crowded. Some riders can be impatient with beginners! Once you have the hang of it defiantly do that ride provides nice views!

The above link you can zoom in and see the primary trails. The trail I'm speaking of is NOT on this map.



If you want to take a little ride, the Baker River Valley system is awesome, they are about a 40 minute ride from Alton. Was there last weekend and it was pretty epic! Funny that area was BURIED in snow and everyone is driving all the way up to Twin and Pittsburg!
Wanted to thank everyone again for their suggestions. I took Maxum's suggestion on Baker River Valley this past Saturday. We headed up mid morning and found the area easily. In summary, this place is a gem. We were very impressed with the club house and how super friendly everyone was. A worker even moved his car for me so I could park in the club house parking lot (it was pretty busy). The trails are awesome and there was certainly no shortage of snow. Trails were clearly marked and were maintained really well. Loved the power line trails as they had good elevation and some twists and turns! We liked it so much that we became members! We will definitely be back. This place made for a great impression with my wife too. Thanks again for the suggestions and Baker River Valley is highly endorsed by us!!Name:  Resized_20190119_130611_001.jpeg
