8 Picturesque Trails In Utah That Are Perfect For Winter Hiking
Have you hung up your hiking boots for the season? We certainly hope not because winter is still an excellent time to hike in Utah! When it snows, the Beehive State turns into a winter wonderland, and you should be out enjoying it. Get your butt off the couch, bundle up and get out there!
Before you head out on a Utah winter hike, make sure you’re fully prepared. If you’re hiking in avalanche country, check with the Utah Avalanche Center for current conditions. In national parks, check in with the visitor’s center and talk to park rangers regarding current and future weather conditions. For some of these hikes you may need snowshoes or Yak-traks to keep your footing. And as always, never hike alone, tell someone where you’ll be and when you expect to be back. Be prepared for bad weather conditions, take along plenty of water and some food. Be safe out there and have a great hike!
