How are the Roads in the Winter*?
Roads leading to Frog Meadow are very well maintained by the town of Newfane. The town removes the snow and sands the road right to our driveway. Our driveway is short and level and is plowed by a local maintenance man.
That being said, the road into Frog Meadow is a steady, three-mile incline. If it is actively snowing or if snow is in the forecast we suggest coming in a four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle with snow tires if at all possible. Two-wheel drive with snow tires is the next best choice. Two-wheel drive with all season tires may be fine during dry periods but might not be sufficient even with just a couple of inches of snow *.
*PLEASE NOTE: We will gladly pick you up at the bottom of the hill and bring you to Frog Meadow during snowy weather no matter what you drive and have arranged with the town for a safe and convenient place for our guests to leave their cars.
