The Enchanting Lakeside Trail In Alaska That Is Just As Gorgeous In The Winter

As Alaskans, we love to get outside year round. But it can be hard for us to find great trails that are easily accessible in winter. And we can all agree that there are definitely some trails that are better hiked in summer than winter. But when it comes to the Trail of Blue Ice, you can be sure you’ll be astounded in any season!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
