Back Again This Year at The West Woods: Free Snowshoe Borrowing!

Back this year: Geauga Park District’s popular free snowshoe borrowing program at The West Woods…and did we mention it’s Free?

The deeper the snow, the better, with at least a few inches a must. But whatever the weather, snowshoes are now waiting in the nature center lobby for your use when the time is right.

Call-ahead reservations are preferred at 440-286-9516. Borrowing can take place any time 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and last up to two hours. Any un-reserved snowshoes are available on a first-come, first served basis.

Borrowers must be 18+ to check out a pair; anyone younger must be accompanied by an adult, and no one under 40 pounds may use the snowshoes due to their weight. Registrants must sign a waiver form and leave a driver’s license as a security deposit.

Please note that snowshoes may not leave The West Woods except for registered programs.

Want a more guided experience? Visit and get your name on our call list for special snowshoe programs to be “called into action” anytime now through March 1 when snow conditions are right!

The West Woods Nature Center is located at 9465 Kinsman Road (Route 87) in Russell Township.
