The snow is here, but that doesn’t mean the hiking season is over!
Hiking in wintertime is a fun, rewarding experience in its own right. And once you get back home, warm food and a hot drink taste even better. The best part? For those who live near the Scotchman Peaks region, there’s no shortage of amazing places to explore.
Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness is preparing to launch its winter hiking season. And there are already plenty of great outings to add to your schedule.
The scheduled hikes provide a chance to explore our wild backyard on snowshoe with fellow nature lovers. FSPW volunteers will be leading snowshoe hikes around Spar Lake, up Star Peak, and in the Ross Creek Cedars. Check out scotchmanpeaks.org/hikes-events-schedule/ to keep an eye on upcoming hikes as we add dates. You can count on hikes being fun, socially distanced and safe for everyone.
As always, remember to dress warmly with good snow boots when hitting trails in wintertime.
