10 Picturesque Trails In North Carolina That Are Perfect For Winter Hiking

Winter can sometimes limit our adventurous spirit. It’s dark, it’s cold, and – lets be honest – no one really wants to get out and be active in the dead of winter. But life should be lived year-round, and in a state that’s packed full of fun, why not make the most of it? These 10 trails are beautiful all the time, but with a little snow you’re transported straight to a winter wonderland.

The good news is that you don’t have to shut yourself in doors all winter or hibernate waiting for warmer temps. There’s still plenty of activity to be had; just make sure to wear lots of layers and ALWAYS check the weather before embarking. Winter can still be exciting, especially in North Carolina.

If you’re looking for other ways to embrace the winter season, why not visit the largest tubing park on the East Coast?
