Hildene is an historic home built in 1905 by President Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln's son, Robert, as a summer residence. The Welcome Center, Museum Store, Pullman Car, Farm, House and exhibits are open year-round 9:30 to 4:30. In the winter months, the Pavilion adjacent to the Welcome Center houses a rental shop. Our approximately 12 miles of walking trails on the estate become ski trails with varying levels of difficulty. We offer ski and snowshoe rentals for children and adults.

Our trails are open for skiing and snowshoeing, with several inches of new snow and a good base. Some trails are tracked, many are ungroomed.

Everyone must check in first and purchase admission at the Welcome Center.

Parking is in the main lot adjacent to the Welcome Center. For your safety and so we can be aware that people are on the trails, everyone, including members, must sign in at the Welcome Center. Thank you!

Also, please note that we are a pet free campus.
