Make The Most Of Winter Hiking

Hiking in winter can be fun as long as you prepare properly. Hop on the 470 and head south to South Valley Park for a great hike with views of the red rocks, wildlife, and meadows. Time it so you can enjoy the sunset, which can be stunning. Just make sure you follow these guidelines so you stay warm and safe while you are out.

If a delightful afternoon at South Valley Park isn’t enough of a challenge for you, you can try a more adventurous mountain hike. This takes weeks of training and conditioning, though, so don’t try it if you are a novice. Go with an expert buddy, especially in winter, and avoid overextending yourself.

No matter what type of hike you choose, know the dangers and be prepared for emergencies. Rocky Mountain Foot & Ankle Center can give you winter foot care tips and evaluate whether your feet and legs are up to the task of hiking in the snow. Give us a call at (303) 423-2520 and set up an appointment at our Wheat Ridge, Golden, Evergreen, or Granby office.
