Winter Trail

Photogallery rendered here.

Join us on our NEW Winter Trail!

Snowshoe, cross-country ski, or hike the best of Brys Estate's 111 acres this winter! Our 2 winter trail options boast beautiful views of a quiet vineyard, resting lavender fields, and snowy, wooded valleys. Keep warm with an insulated mug of our Spiked Hot Apple Cider or a glass of wine while you enjoy the trail, or enjoy it post exercise at one of our cozy fire pits in our snowy open space!

Trail Map

The Green Trail (casual) is a 1 mile loop that starts at the tasting room and takes you through scenic vineyard vistas, past the farmhouse, and back. Add on the Purple Trail (intermediate) to enjoy an additional 1/2 mile trek through wooded valleys to the Secret Garden’s snow covered lavender fields before reconnecting with the Green Trail. Trail takes ~30-40 minutes to complete.

The trail is open to the public during our normal business hours of 11am - 5pm daily. Our winter trails are not groomed and equipment is not provided. Currently no inside service is permitted, therefore all beverages must be consumed outdoors in our open space. Cheese & charctuerie boxes are available to enjoy around the cozy fire pits. The Upper Deck is closed for the season. Only food and drink purchased from the Brys tasting room are permitted on the trail and at the outdoor service area.
