8 Picturesque Trails In Nevada That Are Perfect For Winter Hiking

Hiking in winter in Nevada can lead you to some awesomely beautiful scenic views. Of course, you want to be sure to take some precautions. Dress in layers to keep yourself warm and insulated. Start earlier in the day to avoid finding yourself in the dark because days are shorter this time of year. Always check the weather reports before you go so you’re not surprised by storms. You may also want to invest in some equipment if you’re going to be doing more moderate to difficult trails, such as treking poles, crampons and some backpacking supplies. And finally, make yourself some hot liquids to keep warm. A thermos of coffee, hot tea or hot cocoa can be extremely welcome on a cold hiking day!
