Snowshoeing is my winter hiking. It’s a nice way to get outside and enjoy the scenery. Walking is among the best ways to keep healthy, so for a low-impact workout, snowshoeing is ideal.
On Saturdays through February 24, Methow Trails, the US Forest Service, and Atlas Snowshoes sponsor Nature of Winter Tours in Winthrop, Washington. These snowshoeing tours start at 11 a.m. and last 1.5 to two hours, depending on the conditions. Reservations are not required.
Tours are free, but a Methow Trails snowshoe trail pass is required. Passes are $5 per person and available at these locations:
