  • Restriction Type VPA

Dancing Fiddle Farm has about a mile and a half of easy to moderate trails along Ruddock Creek and in neighboring woods. The active beavers have created an amazing ecosystem with multiple dams and lodges along the creek and this has brought in new wildlife including wood ducks, herons, mallards and more. Plan to sit a spell along the creek and you have a good chance of sighting the beavers. Trails are open year round for hiking, snowshoeing and X country skiing.

Activities: hunting, hiking, snow shoeing, wildlife observation

Hiking Difficulty: easy to moderate
