Only weekday time slots remain through February except holidays. After President's Day if it looks like March will still have favorable conditions we will start booking the first half of the month

New for the 2021 season, Sundays in January have time slots available for reservations in addition to weekdays.

If you've wanted to reserve a Mushing Experience in past years but couldn't get in our schedule, 2021 is your year! This season we have Sunday time slots in addition to weekdays available to take your family mushing! Message SRA today and come see our new location!

Now that we are fully into the winter event schedule, we can only offer the Mushing Experience midweek. Both MLK and Pres. Day are full. Thanks

It won't be long now until we trade out the parade cart for dog sleds. We're booking December times and dates for the Mushing Experience and private parties during Winter break. This may be your only chance to get a weekend date.

The "Mushing Experience" was not: just show up and sit in a sled. Jack and his crew at Silent Run Adventures were great hosts.

Outdoor activities, combined with responsible distancing are the new chic. -There is no warming shed, heaters, or hot ...

Awesome, awesome, awesome l!! It was the best experience ever. It was so cool to see Jack interact with his Siberian huskies. They were all well behaved and ready to pull. The passion jack has for his dogs was obvious and they were happy to follow his commands. This was an experience of a lifetime, not many people get to say they’ve been dog sledding. Thanks for a memorable experience Jack & great job dogs! Jacob & Lexi from Michigan
