Hildene Accessibility Guide

Mid-December to Mid-March

Wintertime can be one of great beauty on the Hildene campus and our 12+/- miles of trails are a wonderful way to experience the property. Open to guests year-round, the trails are of varying levels of difficulty, natural and ungroomed. If you would care to use your own Nordic equipment on our trails, you are welcome to do so. Please be sure to pay admission first in our Welcome Center. CLICK HERE for more info on winter sports.


May I purchase tickets in advance?
Tickets to visit Hildene are available upon arrival. We are not able to accept advanced reservations at this time. Capacity limits will be determined by available parking.

May I take a guided tour?
Hildene venues and exhibits are designed to be self-guided. There are knowledgeable docents available to provide guests with an introduction as well as to answer questions during their visit.
