Does Alaska have any winter-friendly hiking trails?

Winter is notoriously cold and snowy here in Alaska, but you'd be remiss to stay indoors all season. If you're planning on hiking during the winter in Alaska, you'll want to be sure to prepare. Weather can be notoriously unpredictable, so be sure to pack plenty of reinforcements in the form of warm layers, a flashlight, food, and water. You should also be sure to tell someone where you're planning to go hiking if you're going by yourself. (Or even better, bring a hiking buddy). Some of our favorite winter-friendly hiking destinations in Alaska include Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, Spaulding Meadows, Burns Glacier, Powerline Pass, Milo Lakes, White Mountains, Admiralty Island, Turnagain Arm, Knoya Peak, Haines, Tongass National Forest, Peterson Lake, Salmon Creek, Girdwood, Rainbow Lake Trail, Boy Scout Beach, Seward, and Wolverine Peak.
