In the winter, I love to walk, hike, trail run… you name it. I have had several people ask me how I stay active in the winter, and frankly, it is pretty simple. I do exactly what I do in the summer, except with some gear adjustments.
One of my favorite winter activities is snowshoeing, but walking and hiking are definitely on my list of winter activities.
To stay safe when you’re hiking or walking in wet, icy, and snowy areas, you need to make sure you are dressed appropriately, have the appropriate footwear and attachments like YakTraks or Microspikes, and stay nourished and hydrated.
Please take a look at my article on winter hiking and walking tips. If you have other ideas and suggestions, I’d love to hear them. Please leave a comment below. Thanks!
