Pictures, Sled dogs race Add comments

Enter Steve Crone and his incredible staff – of dogs and people – at New England Dogsledding in Mason Township. Crone’s Telemark Inn is nestled nicely at the end of the trail and tucked neatly into a portion of the White Mountains National Forest. For more than 20 years, Crone, a storied outdoorsman in his own right and a self-described radical environmentalist, has been treating his guests to dog sled rides in the forest.
