Winter Hiking Trails List

Here is a list of hikes that can be done in the winter in Utah! Many people give up hiking when the weather gets cold, but it is a beautiful time to hike. It’s peaceful and there is nothing quite like a frozen waterfall. This post below gives all the tips and tricks if you have never hiked in the winter or want extra info:
Winter Hiking – All You Need to Know

Other than layers of warm clothing and wool socks, the one must-have item for winter hiking is microspikes for traction on the ice and snow.

Winter Hiking Safety

There are some trails that are in avalanche areas, so be sure to check before you go to make sure you’ll be safe.

Trail Sledding
