Snowshoeing and Winter Hiking in Grayling MI
For snow lovers who aren’t interested in snowmobiling or skiing, the Grayling area has other options. Winter hiking and snowshoeing are growing in popularity and are a perfect way to get out in nature in the winter.
Most of the same trails that are open to the public during the non-snow months are also open when there is snow on the ground. And while snowshoes are certainly more useful when there is a lot of snow, lesser amounts of snow are easy to traipse through wearing hiking or winter boots. Snowshoes are available in a huge variety of sizes, shapes and colors; while the old fashioned wooden type are still sometimes used, the modern versions are smaller, lighter and more durable.
Love to walk during the summer? Take a walk during a light snowfall, or on a cold, crisp morning when the sun is just rising and the snow is glittering like a million crystals! Dress warmly, walk with a buddy, grab poles or ice grips for your boots, and enjoy the exercise and fresh air; even if the grass isn’t green and the sun isn’t shining.
