Snowshoeing is permitted in any of the District’s 168 parks and across the 48-mile network of trails. Enjoy the peace, beauty and serenity of winter in the parks. Whenever the snow cover is three inches or more, snowshoes are available for rent weekdays (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) at the Red Oak Nature Center. For $5, you can rent a pair of snowshoes – poles included – to navigate across the white stuff.
