  • Taking a winter walk? Here are a few tips from The Partners of Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Wilderness, Inc.: 1. Expect cold weather even if the day was warm when you started your hike. Weather systems often move in quickly in winter. Dress for the occasion.
2. Remember that days are shorter in the winter resulting in less daylight. Take lights even if only planning a day hike. When it gets dark in the woods, it is dark!
3. If there snow on the ground or if the ground is wet from rain, it is going to take you longer to reach your destination. Footing is more treacherous and the likelihood of an injury from a fall increases.
4. Take into consider elevation. If you are hiking a high elevation trail you know you are going to have some steep climbing. Allow more time for this. Also storms move into the high mountains and ridges first and are usually more intense.
5. Let someone know where you are going and when you expect to return. It is better not to hike alone. If we know what area you were going to be hiking in, especially what trailhead you entered from, we are going to get to you sooner in the event that a search or rescue is needed.
