You don’t have to give up your love of hiking just because Colorado's trails are blanketed in snow. Strap on a pair of snowshoes and hit the trails for a vigorous and rewarding trek through the quiet, pillowy Colorado landscape.
Snowshoeing trails are abundant across Colorado, with some of the best trail systems located in our national parks and forests, 41 state parks and a network of dozens of Nordic centers and ranches. And it's pretty much true that if you can walk, you can snowshoe, so there's no learning curve to picking up this peaceful Colorado winter pastime.
