One of the easiest ways to get out in it and experience the change of seasons: SNOWSHOES! These amazing contraptions make it possibly to get your hiking groove on with out falling through the snow on every step. It’s a beautiful and peaceful way to enjoy nature, and we want to do more of it in 2015!
If you’re lucky enough to live near the park or be able to visit this Winter, there are Ranger-led snowshoe walks in Apgar offered now through March! This would be a great way to try snowshoeing for the first time and get a weekend date in! If you live elsewhere- still go snowshoe this Winter. Many sporting goods stores & Army Navy stores rent equipment for reasonable prices. Go explore your favorite warm-season trail in the Winter!
