Over 50 years ago John and Sidney Maxwell founded a company
called The Ski Hut, in Wilton Center, as a way to share their
family's passion for skiing with the community. In 1983 their
son, Jack Maxwell changed our name to Outdoor Sports Center, and
moved us to 80 Danbury Road in Wilton. The name and location change
was part Jack's dream to share his enthusiasm and philosophy; to
help grow and nurture respect for the outdoors by using it as our
playground. Today, we are still 100% family owned, many of our
staff have been with us for 15 years or more, and we are proud to
have customers that can recall our "Ski Hut" heritage.
Our commitment remains to promote a friendly and knowledgeable
community, to provide only the best gear and service, and to always

We are lucky to live in a part of the country where beautiful
hiking trails abound, and even luckier to have endless options
right in our own little corner of Connecticut. There are many
hiking trails that cater to those of you who want to spend a full
day out in the woods, conquering new terrain and never passing the
same rock twice. On the contrary, if you are a new hiker or you
want to introduce the activity to your young children, there is no
shortage of local trails that will fit your needs. We've put
together a guide to some of our favorite nearby hiking spots based
on the ease of the hike and size of the park. In addition, we
compiled a list of must-have items for each one so you can stay
